I try to make my SD-reader work on a HP ZBook.

5d:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5249 (rev 01)

uname -a
Linux Antisana.psc-elsene.be 2.6.32-431.17.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed May 7 23:32:49 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Googling gave me http://linuxterminal.org/issue-with-rts5229-pci-express-card-reader/; last reply by François suggests to download the Realtek 5229 driver, edit the Makefile and rtsx.c and compile.
And it works as stated.

It would be handy if this module could be incorporated with epel. But I can't find the right way to make such a request. (shame on me)

Thanks for any pointer
