You can see on our schematics that the hinged sdhc card slot is an
assembly option and not the default.

You have either an initial early developer unit (pre-production) that
was assembled like this for testing, or a unit that someone
specifically ordered assembled this way. You can see from the
schematic that this option does not have a CD-pin because it is meant
to be a more permanent storage option.

That being said, this is not a default option and therefore should not
be merged into the mainline device-tree. Our soms and carriers are
designed to be very flexible regarding the assembly options and we try
to mainline device-tree files that represent the most common assembly
options. Once there is a common accepted mainlining for device-tree
fragments for overlays, that would be the proper place to make this
change. Although in this case you would also need a custom u-boot so
it is probably best to just handle the change there. If you would
like touch base with me off list and I can point you at the required
u-boot changes.
