You may have a look at the "rtemsbsd/sys/dev/dw_mmc/dw_mmc.c" file of
rtems-libbsd for an example.

But I'm still confused about the cache operation. I put "flush" for when a SD command processing(block read or write) has been completed. This somehow seems to make the DMAed data from SD card to 'come to cache' - maybe declaring the cache invalid or empty' for SD card read. But I don't understand how data from disk cache(bdbuf) goes to real memory for DMA (to SD card) because I fulsh the cache only 'after' the command completion. (just by lucky flush out?, or should I put another cache flush before DMA write to SD card controller? )

I guess there should be setting that tells bdbuf to use some area that the bsp assigned for DMA(non-cacheable). Or , maybe I should map the buffer address to non-cacheable adderss and copyit myself?(should be slow). What is the correct method?
