One more important detail when playing with the 8:10 card slot:

If the kernel has drivers that access the port (i.e., MMC or
atben), these drivers need to be disabled before bit-banging the
port from user space.

The following script accomplishes this:

To give the port back to the respective driver, change "unbind"
to "bind".
