There could be couple of ways:

1. If you have access to the kernel and going to flash the same on your
mobile, then you can modify the common probe of the SD card subsystem
and let it call your driver depending on the card and default driver in
case of other card. This will hold true if you can differentiate between
the cards.

2. If you dont have kernel sources then you can remove the  default
driver temporarily while your SD card is in place and load it later. You
may need another module to do this.  This will work in a scenario where
you just have one slot for SD Card.
