The images that Udit is using for his tests can be made available for
verification if that's desirable (we have a webserver available). His blogs
are very good as well.

I'll just point out that Udits SGOC project has nothing to do with the
flash implementation of the cards. Udit, I would hesitate to go down the
road of multiple card tests unless you have a great deal of spare time.
There are far more pertinent questions that can be asked about the variance
between SDHCI and SDIO implementations. There is still the little detail of
porting to RTEMS too. :)
