i recently set up my Eee 701 with debian sid and it's working beautifully
except for the sd card reader.
I have a 16 GB SDHC memory card, unfortunately no other SD card to test right
now, will do that asap.
The error occurs whenever the card is inserted and looks like this:

[ 3946.589532] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Mode Sense: 03 00 00 00
[ 3946.589539] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 3946.589553]  sdb: sdb1 sdb2 < sdb5 >
[ 3946.653507] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK
[ 3946.653529] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Sense Key : Hardware Error [current]
[ 3946.653541] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Add. Sense: Unrecovered read error
[ 3946.653556] end_request: I/O error, dev sdb, sector 31388664

Before installing sid onto the internal SSD i ran ubuntu-eee from that very
same SD card with no perceived problems.
It still boots and works so i guess the hardware should be ok.

Someone on IRC mentioned a kernel patch to fix this but couldn't find it anymore.
