That sound you heard was me smacking my head because I'm an idiot.  Of
course, the DMA won't work for the AU1100, at least not that engine, so
you would certainly need to go for just PIO mode.

That message is innocent - it simply states that we couldn't identify your
card, so we're powering it down.  It looks like the card wasn't replying
to the CMD2, so the controller figured that there was nothing on the line.

Well, first of all make sure that the driver is correct - I wrote it against
the AU1200 spec, so if there is something different in the AU1100 spec,
we'll have to #ifdef it.  Secondly, make sure the card really works.
Thirdly, you'll have to stick in printk() statements in the driver, to
make sure we're actually sending out the commands.  Finally, you might have
to stick a scope on the bus to make sure the protocol is sane on the
