SDIO has 9 pin, but microSD has only 8 pin.
Not sure how it can work for SDIO.

Before my Neo1973 arrived, I thought that it had one SDIO slot
so that I could bring WiFi functionality with other SDIO WiFi card.

I know SDIO stack and I already ported the Linux driver of one SDIO Wifi card.
Sorry I can tell the chipset vendor.

So if someone could show me the SDIO layout, I may ask my friend to make SDIO
connector for me.
Then I will try to make SDIO work on Neo 1974.

It's fine for me to remove internal Atheros WiFi module.
