I was not actually aware that the registers were exposed via sysfs. I
was debugging a problem where the host controller was returning all
zeros when reading from the card. I wasn't aware that it was returning
all zeros until I added tracing. It made it quite easy to diagnose the
problem by just diffing the two traces.

Also if the card fails to mount because the data is invalid, the
registers would not be exposed via sysfs. So tracing makes gives us an
easy way to debug these types of failures.

Thanks,
