   Ok, whoever wrote that warning *really* meant it!

   I was sure I had tried to enable ehci on another kernel before,
without being able to access my card reader. And sure enough; after a
reboot NetBSD would not detect the reader. I rebooted again, and it did
find the card reader. So detection is somewhat flaky.

   Also, I tried using the card, which turned out to be a pretty big
mistake. I've managed to hang NetBSD in various creative ways the last
few hours. Most of them involve the command "dd" and my SD-card. Very

   Has ehci support been enhanced in 3.1?

   If not, what needs to be done?

Kind Regards,
