Openbmc not detecting sd card

I compiled the latest code from the git for evb-ast2500 and loaded the
image onto the board. The borad has an external micro sd that I am trying
to access it for storage purposes.
OpenBmc does not seem to detect it. Below is output of some of the commands
that could help with the issue. Can someone please help me with this? Do I
need to enable something when compiling or do I need to add a driver when
compiling? Is there any step that i should follow to discover the sd card?
