This stuff is out of scope for me, but what I can say is I don't
personally recommend anyone start sticking tiny caps on fiddly
connectors before they tried performance with current software.
That goes double when you consider at the time the cap workaround was
floated we ran SD_CLK all the time, now we only run it tightly around SD
Card access and performed changes to drivers impacting that problem from
several different directions including slew rate, voltage and frequency.
(If anyone does want to do it, make sure you have some solder braid to
recover from any "blobbing accidents" cleanly.)
