It just doesn't work.  It won't detect that a card has been inserted and
doesn't create the device nodes for it though it does log lots of data
where it tries.

Pierre explained further up this thread on why it tries to do what it
does but for some reason he's not seeing the expected behaviour from the
scheduler.

As a user I don't care where the bug is fixed :)
