Is Arnd Hannemann, the author, around these days by any chance?

Or does anyone on the list have a shareable old datasheet?  The one we
have is the one for R-Mobile A1 and has CONFIDENTIAL on it.

Yes that's what we think and what we see with our test code, which is
just the original without IOMOD removed.

We don't have it yet.  A question we have is that where should we
enable / disable the IOMOD?

Do we have to keep it disabled while the controller is in non-SDIO?
The spec says that we don't get SDIO irq while in non-SDIO mode.  But
should we trust?

Or, should we disable it when we switch back to non-SDIO mode and
enable when we detect SDIO?

Please enlighten us this area.  We'll submit the proper fix once we
know how we should do it.
