Hi,

ever since I upgraded to kernel 3.6 (from kernel 3.4), and recently from 3.6 to 3.7, I have been unable to mount any SD cards (or CompactFlash etc.). This happens in both my built-in Ricoh card reader and my externel USB multi-card reader. It makes no sense to me? The kernel reports the device, but no device node is created. Neither /dev/sdb nor /dev/mmc-something appear. Does anyone know what I have to do?

This is from my kernel config
Code:

Device Drivers -->
                       --- MMC/SD/SDIO card support 
                       [ ]   MMC debugging
                       [ ]   Assume MMC/SD cards are non-removable (DANGEROUS)
                       [*]   MMC host clock gating (EXPERIMENTAL)                           
                             *** MMC/SD/SDIO Card Drivers ***
                       <*>   MMC block device driver
                       (8)     Number of minors per block device     
                       [*]     Use bounce buffer for simple hosts
                       < >   SDIO UART/GPS class support
                       < >   MMC host test driver
                             *** MMC/SD/SDIO Host Controller Drivers ***
                       <*>   Secure Digital Host Controller Interface support
                       <*>   SDHCI support on PCI bus
                       [*]     Ricoh MMC Controller Disabler  (EXPERIMENTAL)
                       <*>   SDHCI platform and OF driver helper
                       < >   Winbond W83L51xD SD/MMC Card Interface support
                       < >   TI Flash Media MMC/SD Interface support  (EXPERIMENTAL)
                       <*>   MMC/SD driver for Ricoh Bay1Controllers (EXPERIMENTAL)
                       < >   ENE CB710 MMC/SD Interface support
                       < >   VIA SD/MMC Card Reader Driver
                       < >   VUB300 USB to SDIO/SD/MMC Host Controller support
                       < >   USB SD Host Controller (USHC) support

Do you have the probe all Lun option activated in the kernel ?
device/SCSI/probe all LUN

Yes I do. And that's why it's so confusing...

Nothing at all. As if the device wasn't even active. And the external USB device doesn't register the cards either. But it worked in kernel 3.4 -> That's how I know it's not a hardware defect... And the cards work fine in 2 different cameras.

When you run tail -f /var/log/messages as root there is nothing upon insertion?

No, nothing. I have tried these before, because I know how important it is to report error messages in order to find a solution, but here I'm at a loss. :( Has the SDHCI kernel option been connected to something new that I need to activate since 3.4?
