Hi Zhang,

I'm agree with you, probably is better try to get this driver running
in a well know system (x86 PC), however I would like to think the
driver is operative in the hardware listed by Renesas people:

   Lenovo IBM ThinkPad x60/x40 (SDIO controller: Ricoh)
   TOSHIBA dynabook SS M10/Qosmio E10 375LS  (SDIO controller: Texas
   Panasonic Let's note CF-T4 (SDIO controller Ricoh)

Probably the hard work with this driver is a good integration with the
Ingenic SoC SDIO controller (code), so I prefer dig in this scope,
meanwhile I'm looking for a hardware with the supported SDIO
controllers (Ricoh and TI).

Have you tested the driver with any other SDIO controller?

I know you have had problems with the CMD52 SDIO command, have you got
any progress on it?
