Yesterday, I found that switching to 1-bit bus width allowed data transfers to 
finally work. I aim to investigate 4-bit mode today, which should be supported 
by SD cards, but I imagine that it is more complicated than it appears.

For instance, a command is needed to set the bus width on SD cards: they start 
out in 1-bit mode and need to be told to switch to 4-bit mode. It isn't enough 
to tell the SoC to use 4-bit mode, but I suppose the Linux framework knows 
about this already.
