MacBook expresscard sleep issue

I have a Macbook Pro 15” and a 34 Expresscard ‘30in1 Adapter’ made by Hama for reading my Memorysticks and SD cards. Sadly, even having applied the Apple supplied fix, the Macbook simply wouldn’t sleep. A little browsing and some .plist editing, and a build in Xcode later, and it’s fixed.

One just needs to create a kernel extension to tell it to use its existing workaround for badly implemented Expresscards for a particular VendorID/ProductID pair.
