Last year Udit worked on this project (CC on this mail). See the
following for the status reports:


The really relevant part of the status is the one from July 18th: The
driver already started to work but it was still not fully functional.
After that some more benchmarks have been carried out due to some slight
direction change in the project.

For SDIO the stack would have to be updated to the latest version of
libbsd and some debugging would be necessary. That is most likely not
enough work left for a complete project.

Kind regards
