Ah, I got the impression from TomTom that the driver was from Samsung.
But I see now that Tomas Kleffel is listed as the author. Samsung has
another SD/MMC driver that they do claim copyright on, even though
they've taken more or less all of the code for it from my sdhci driver.
They're not scoring any points there...

Great. It's always easier to keep track of things when they are in-tree.
