    I'd suggest that the DMA chaining scheme could interleave the bytes: 1st pass does half, second pass does others. But DMA hardware requires address aligned buffers.

    SDIO in 1 bit mode is faster than SPI. But SDIO shines when you implement the 4 bit mode and of course DMA on all this.
    Most all SDIO uses 4 bit mode. So it's wise to wire up those bits and not try...
