RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader=Unassigned class [ff00] dv6t-7000

Hello everyone.  I am having issues with the built-in card reader in my HP dv6t-7000.  I know that this kind of question has been asked before, but I am unable to find a solution.  I am new to Arch, but have used almost ALL other distros.  Arch is the first Linux on my laptop.   Now down to the details.

The card reader class is Unassigned.  Why?  I followed this thread:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=206464 and installed the realtek driver with no sucess. dmesg shows no changes. The card reader is basically ignored.
according to lsmod the module is active.

 rts5229               299012  

What should I do?

same fix. Didn't work for me. Should I try rtsx_pci instead?

Okay. Now this is serious. I can just switch back to Windows for the card reader, but now my USB 3.0 ports (3 out of the 4 usb ports) are not working.  AT ALL.  Someone please help

I had a problem with a different model Ricoh card reader on a Gazelle Pro Laptop. I found a driver that worked for my case, it might work for yours as well:

My USB 3.0 ports are still not working.  the rts5229 module keeps being loaded. the rts_bpp module won't get loaded.  What should I do?
