adding SD card via SPI for use as file storage

While I’d usually use MMC1 as brought out to the expansion connector of the beagle bone for an additional mmc card I just ordered a 1.8 inch color display from adafruit that has SPI display and sd card holder on board, both connected to the SPI bus. . Is there a fairly easy way to have the SD card on this board recognised and used by the kernel as simply another block device containing one or more filesystem partitions such that I could simply mount and use normally a SD card inserted there (even if a bit slower due to access via SPI)?
