If the SD card is removed, the mmc_card pointer can be set to NULL
by the mmc_sd_remove() function. Check mmc_card pointer to avoid NULL
pointer access.

As stated in the other replies, this is just a vague explanation to a
*potential* problem.

Please explain the details for how this problem can occur - or a way

Kind regards
