This works well on my ThinkPad X60 (1709-73U) with RELENG_7 circa
October 23rd (s/kproc/kthread/, thanks to Oleksandr Tymoshenko):

sdhci0: <RICOH R5C822 SD> mem 0xe4301800-0xe43018ff irq 18 at device 0.2
on pci21
sdhci0: 1 slot(s) allocated
sdhci0: [ITHREAD]

Tested with 1GB, 2GB and 4GB (SDHC) cards.

The side note: write-lock switch on the card was also correctly detected
and reported.

Thank you very much for your work!
