Default Bad LUN and bad target number messages during boot

Hello archers,

I'm running Arch Linux on an Acer Aspire One D257 [1]. Since last
month, I've notices these messages showing up during the boot process:

(from dmesg | less)

[ 6.714686] Bad LUN (0:1)
[ 6.715042] Bad target number (1:0)
[ 6.715437] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk #I
usally don't see this one
[ 6.715733] Bad target number (2:0)
[ 6.716020] Bad target number (3:0)
[ 6.716308] Bad target number (4:0)
[ 6.716594] Bad target number (5:0)
[ 6.716937] Bad target number (6:0)
[ 6.717225] Bad target number (7:0)

Just before the aforementioned messages, I see also:
(this time from less /var/log/everything.log )
[ 5.730996] acer_wmi: No or unsupported WMI interface, unable to load

I don't know if these messages are connected (I don't think so)

Apparently, this doesn't lead to further problems. My google searches
did not return anything useful, except that others experienced similar
messages; there is even one thread in the Arch Forum [2], but didn't
get much attention. As far as I can see, there are no bug reports or
documentation concerning messages like these. It seems something
regarding SD card reader...

Now, I'm wondering:
- Is it a known problem?
- What do these messages mean?
- Can it cause problems or harm my hardware? Should I be worried?
- Should I fill a bug report...?

Now, some output:
