    The problem is this from the 2.5.50 Changelog that Linus posted:

    Dave Jones <>:
    o make cardbus PCI enable earlier

    I'm willing to submit a patch, but I think Dave has to make the call whether
    it should be backed out entirely, or moved after pci_assign_resource().
    I certainly don't understand the code *or* PCI well enough to decide between
    those two option...
