Is a 12 MB/s microSD overkill for what the glamo driver does?

In the world of benchmarks and speed estimates, you have to keep your
wits about you to not be bamboozled.  That's why I write out what I mean
like 3MBytes/sec.  The numbers in the Wikipedia article is in fact
talking about MBytes/sec, most people use capital B to mean bytes and
little b to mean bits.  But I heartily recommend typing the few extra
characters to remove any possibility of confusion.

We can't max out that transfer speed but it won't make any harm.  In the
future we might squeeze more performance from Glamo SD driver.
