    No, not easily or quickly. The 2.3 structure has been completely changed,
    starting from an old driver version. Re-implementing my updates would take
    two or three weeks.

    They should be considered together: the CardBus (and hot-swap-PCI) design
    issues are tightly tied to the media selection issue. The driver must be
    prepared to reset and activate the transceiver after a resume from suspend
    state. This is different than a in-operation reset. (The former should
    retrigger autonegotiation, the latter should not.)

    Here is a recent version

    My internal version 0.92 has the following updates from v0.91x on that page:
    Various changes to the header files to track 2.3.* updates
    Change the interrupt mitigation setting on line 2733 to
    (Josip Loncaric at ICASE did extensive experimentation to develop a good
    interrupt mitigation setting)
    outl(0x8b240000, ioaddr + CSR11);
