Ah. I had thought that switching a card while the system is off would be
far more rare. I see my view is limited to netbooks, quite disjunct from, say,

Yes, rebuilding kernels myself every time there is a security update has
The impact of CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME seems to be contstrained to let
#define mmc_suspend NULL
#define mmc_resume NULL
#define mmc_sd_suspend NULL
#define mmc_sd_resume NULL
if it's not defined, and with implementations otherwise, filling the
mmc_ops and mmc_sd_ops structs. After that my kernel fu is too weak.
What needs to be done to get this to be a module option?
