Linux Ricoh XD support

… is coming along nicely! I’ve disassembled about 75% of the driver now, and can talk to XD cards and receive the expected responses. The hardware interface is slightly more complex than the simple bitbanging interface I expected, and there are still a few mysterious fields of registers I must work out.

I could write a driver now which would work, but being a perfectionist (in software anyway ;), I must expose all its secrets.

I’ve actually been distracted by reading and Deathnote recently, or I’d have finished the disassembly a week or so ago.
