Adel Ahmed,

What of that kernel thermal option I posted about above?

That your wifi is on SDIO is good to know.
Do you use BIOS or EFI to boot?

I haven't noticed that, my mistake, I have just compiled it into the new kernel and reboot and I still can only see the loopback and sit0 interfaces, and I can't see the memory card interface yet either.
I'm booting using EFI

Adel Ahmed,

Lets start again withe a self consistent data set.
You current Gentoo kernel .config file.
Your current Gentoo dmesg.
Code:
lspci -knn
(think your WiFi is on SDIO)

The System Rescue CD dmesg.

As you are using booting using EFI, you don't need any odd text files to provide the configuration info that EFI normally provides.

Describe where you found the firmware and where it is installed.

I see this in the dmesg from sys rescue cd:
sdhci controller on acpi

I'm trying to see if that might lead me to something in the kernel configuration

Adel Ahmed,

I'm guessing but are either of
Code:
# CONFIG_INTEL_IDMA64 is not set
# CONFIG_INTEL_IOATDMA is not set
useful?

MMC interfaces are not supposed to require DMA but they are very slow without it.

You have
Code:
CONFIG_MMC_SDHCI_ACPI=m

Turn off
Code:
CONFIG_MMC_DEBUG=y
Debug options generate lots of logspam and are permitted to prevent normal operation.

Adel Ahmed,

Are the modules loaded?
If not, did you modprobe them?

Sdhci_acpi loads automatically
The other dma modules do not
I modprobed them and got no changes
Ill build them into the kernel now to see if that makes any difference

Intel low power subsystem support in processor type and features
X86_intel_lpss
Compiling with this options solved the problem
