with runtime PM for certain types of SD cardreaders.

+ignore_resume_medium_changed (RW)
+---------------------------------
+Some SD cardreaders deliver a "media changed" unit attention (that results
+in I/O error) when they are resumed from suspend. This prevents users
+to use runtime PM with these devices. To enable runtime PM for an SD
+cardreader (here, device number 0:0:0:0), do something like:
+
+echo 0 > /sys/module/block/parameters/events_dfl_poll_msecs
+echo 1000 > /sys/bus/scsi/devices/0:0:0:0/power/autosuspend_delay_ms
+echo auto > /sys/bus/scsi/devices/0:0:0:0/power/control
+
+And if using the mounted disk filesystem causes trouble, try setting
+ignore_resume_medium_changed to 1.
