Default Bug#497706: boot halts on the eeepc 701 with SD card in slot

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
Version: 2.6.26+15

I run debian testing on my eee pc 701. The box has one sd slot, and I have a
transcend 16Gb sd card on it. When the card was new and empty, the system
would boot with no problems with the card inside the slot. However, after I
started writing to it, when I boot the system, it halts after udev starts
with a read error on the card, and a hard boot is required. If I boot
without the card in, everything goes fine.

My first guess was a bad sd card. I reformated it, used badblocks -w on it,
and no problems were found. After the card was formated (and empty), the
system would boot without problems.

However, as soon as I started writing to it, when I reboot I get the same
read errors again.

If, however, I plug the card after system boot, I can use it without
problems. I just tried to read it all to make sure:

gapski at revo:~$ dd bs=1024 if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/null
15694336+0 records in
15694336+0 records out
16071000064 bytes (16 GB) copied, 967.822 s, 16.6 MB/s

A later post on the debian eeepc mailing list seems to identify the
issue and point to a patch:

Can this patch be included into debian kernels?
