Card readers

I have mentioned this before in other threads, but it appears it
requires a thread of its own.

I have a laptop with a card reader built in which I have never been able
to get to work. Everything I have looked up regarding these has to do
with usb versions, and other than the laptops my card readers are usb so
this shouldn't be a problem.

In the laptops I have a texas instruments PCI card reader though, which
gives me a real headache. I can't seem to get them to operate at all, so
I'm left wondering about drivers and such. These are the specs:

Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Integrated FlashMedia
02:09.4 SD Host controller: Texas Instruments
PCI6411/6421/6611/6621/7411/7421/7611/7621 Secure Digital Controller

I'm currently running Fedora (which seems to work), but I'd like to move
over to FreeBSD as soon as I can get all the features needed on these. I
seem to be making headway on most of these, so here's hoping.

The card reader is capable of reading nearly all format cards, including
xD which is a main reason why I'd like to get it to work.

Any links and info would be very appreciated.
