EDIT: Solved. If you don't want to read the whole thing. It uses the rts5139 driver and is on the usb bus.

The card reader works with Gentoo LiveDVD. I am positive had it working after installing gentoo on the laptop. Until recent upgrades & kde4.9.3.

Now when insert a SD card nothing happens. At least I can insert the card in the camera and use usb.

The first thing noticed was a name change. That shouldn't affect it I believe cause the vendor and product ids are the same:
Code:

lspci output:
1) Was and on LiveDVD: 00:14.7 SD Host controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Hudson SD Flash Controller (prog-if 01)
2) Now is called: 00:14.7 SD Host controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] FCH SD Flash Controller (prog-if 01)

In fact all the 'Hudson' have been changed to 'FCH'. This website: http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/1022/7806 shows the name change. Which I don't
believe is the problem. But not sure and seems to have happened around the same time.

lshw which still shows them as 'Hudson':
prob cause using different pci.ids list:
/usr/share/lshw/pci.ids
/usr/share/misc/pci.ids
Code:

        *-generic
             description: SD Host controller
             product: Hudson SD Flash Controller
             vendor: Hynix Semiconductor (Hyundai Electronics)
             physical id: 14.7
             bus info: pci@0000:00:14.7
             version: 00
             width: 64 bits
             clock: 66MHz
             capabilities: bus_master
             configuration: driver=sdhci-pci latency=39
             resources: irq:16 memory:f024a000-f024a0ff


'udevadm monitor' shows it fine on LiveDVD. Nothing comes up on normal system. I have an idea it might be the screwy stuff that has been going on with udev.

This is all dmesg is showing on it:
Code:

sdhci: Secure Digital Host Controller Interface driver
sdhci: Copyright(c) Pierre Ossman
sdhci-pci 0000:00:14.7: SDHCI controller found [1022:7806] (rev 0)

Decibels,

Your kernel snippit shows all of the mmc drivers made as modules and your lsmod shows that none are loaded.

Using trial and error, find out which is the right one for you, then add it to /etc/conf.d/modules

Thanks NeddySeagoon for the quick reply to my issue. Certainly was a trial and error.

Well, looks like I got further. Still have to put old system back. I recovered from a backup where thought it worked and guess got rid of that backup.

I booted up with the LiveDVD. Started removing modules: sdhci, sdhci-pci, mmc-core, ssb, ohci-hcd and still works. lspci doesn't even show it having a driver now, which was sdhci-pci. Still works though when insert the SD card.

Inserted the SD card and watched with 'udevadm monitor'. It showed it as /dev/sdb/sdb1. Then ran lshw command, it shows (note: this isn't under the Flash Controller though, just looked for the /dev/sdb):
Code:

     *-scsi:2
          physical id: 3
          bus info: usb@1:5
          logical name: scsi2
          capabilities: emulated scsi-host
          configuration: driver=rts5139
        *-disk
             description: SCSI Disk
             product: xD/SD/M.S.
             vendor: Generic-
             physical id: 0.0.0
             bus info: scsi@2:0.0.0
             logical name: /dev/sdb
             version: 1.00
             serial: 3
             capabilities: removable
             configuration: sectorsize=512
           *-medium
                physical id: 0
                logical name: /dev/sdb

Hmmm, completely different driver: rts5139. Not the one lshw or lspci on the harddrive shows for the Flash Controller, which shows the sdhci-pci driver.

Note: lshw on LiveDVD shows the sdhci-pci for the Flash Controller also. I also grep'd the output of lspci -v -v -v for realtek and it only shows the wireless ethernet chipset this laptop uses. Nothing about the SD card reader.

As a futher check I had already removed the other modules, so removed the rts5139 and then the card reader finally stopped working.
Code:

modinfo rts5139
filename:       /lib/modules/3.3.0-gentoo-r1/kernel/drivers/staging/rts5139/rts5139.ko
version:        v1.04
license:        GPL
description:    Realtek RTS5139/29 USB card reader driver

alias:          usb:v0BDAp0129d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*

depends:

parm:           ss_delay:seconds to delay before entering selective suspend (int)
parm:           needs_remote_wakeup:ss state needs remote wakeup supported (int)


So booted back up to the harddrive and compiled in the rts5139 driver as module and removed the 'MMC/SD/SDIO card support' as a further test. Rebooted after installing the modules and the module wasn't picked up. Had to manually insert it. Then card reader started working!!!! Not sure why system isn't seeing the card reader for what it is and that the LiveDVD at least loads the module rts5139, but still says the driver is sdhci-pci.

I will test later if need to put any of the MMC/SD/SDIO stuff back in, when recover from backup my current system on the harddrive. After that will provide further notes if needed and mark this solved.

Okay, finally SOLVED! I guess I don't know what that report from lspci is on the
[00:14.7 SD Host controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] FCH SD Flash Controller] but it isn't the Card Reader.

This is continued from above, where figured it out. But had to recover my system from backup and see if still worked. It didn't, but module did load. I just had to remerge: udisks and dbus, then reboot. Was gone for awhile and thought was going to have to dig into it more. But forgot hadn't rebooted.
