Hi Herton,

I installed and tested the kernel from -proposed on two Toshiba R850s, one with Intel graphics, the other with AMD Radeon graphics.

Both systems failed as described originally when inserting the SD card.

With the new kernel the card reader works! I tested with 1-GB Kingston SD cards.

This is what I see in /var/log/syslog:

Sep 6 13:51:23 201103-7412 kernel: [ 99.940660] mmc0: new SD card at address b368
Sep 6 13:51:23 201103-7412 kernel: [ 99.999328] mmcblk0: mmc0:b368 SD 970 MiB
Sep 6 13:51:23 201103-7412 kernel: [ 100.000521] mmcblk0: p1

The card automounts under /media/something-or-other, I then tested writing about 150 MB worth of files which went on without any reported errors in syslog.

Kernel version string is:
Linux version 2.6.38-11-generic (buildd@roseapple) (gcc version 4.5.2 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.5.2-8ubuntu4) ) #49-Ubuntu SMP Mon Aug 29 20:47:58 UTC 2011

This was tried on both R850s with similar success.

I'm tagging verification-done-natty per Herton's request.

Thanks so much for getting this fix into -proposed!
