So, this is pretty much what vendors always say about this stuff...

Looking at what's specified in the platform data in the current kernel
it seems like there's a mixture of things in there that are board and
silicon specific. We've got parameters like the the speed mode and
timeout which are reasonably board specific but we've also got things
like the FIFO sizes which shouldn't be at all board specific and slsu
which really looks like it's something that that the driver ought to be
able to figure out for itself.
