Description stephleg 2008-11-30 21:00:06 UTC

I recently purchased an USB adapter to read SD cards. On my first try, i made a mistake and put the SD card on the wrong side. This instantantly crashed my FreeBSD system. Here is the KDB output : 

There is absolutely no warranty for GDB.  Type "show warranty" for details.
This GDB was configured as "i386-marcel-freebsd"...

Of course, this crash should never happen as i'm supposed to put the SD card on the right side :-) But i prefer to send this PR in case this could be avoided.

By the way, when the SD card is put on the right side, it works perfectly well.

Put the SD card on the right side! :-)
How-To-Repeat: Plug the USB card reader with a SD card put on the wrong side.
