You can get the latest SDCard reader kext from here (version 2.2 is stable). Weird although you mentioned never able to locate the kext, yet in the IOReg file you posted, it shows it's already install

you just need to eject and re insert it again to work. Yes, it's not perfect but at least it's semi supported now.  With USBPorts.kext + EC.aml if available will replace USBInjectall.kext + disab

Seems right enough. USB port limit patches basically means that: it removes the limit of 15 x USB ports and extends it to something like 24 if I'm not mistaken. Check the comments further to the right

@Jake Lo Hey, can you answer some of my questions?

- What does FixMutex do?

- What does IOAHCIBlockStorage do? Do I need this?

- When I open the lid, I have to press any key to wake my laptop up or it will go to sleep again. How can I fix that?

1)  It corrects some Mutex objects with a non-zero SyncLevel, otherwise system might not run correctly, setting them to zero

2) IOAHCIBlockStorage is a patch used in older system which allows your drives to be detected. Don't use it if you don't have such issue

3) Add boot arg darwake=0

No, I mean Zero. The Clover quirks does it for you, you don't have to go in and do it manually if that's what you're asking.

Look at the comment of what the patch is for. If you don't need it, you can simply disable it. Most likely you have the patch for Trimming. In recently MacOS, you can enable trimming with a simple command so disabling / deleting it is fine.
