Heh. I'm hoping that it would help to just change vcc_settle to 50

No, I think it's mainly the card.

I certainly don't think it would be wrong to change it to a longer
timeout. Although I also suspect that we should in that case try to exit
early too, ie change it to something like

for (i = 0; i < vcc_settle; i++) {
skt->ops->get_status(skt, &status);
if (status & SS_POWERON)

or similar. But if changing it to 50 fixes it for you, that's probably a
good minimal change for now.

Although it's really a KERN_DEBUG(), so most people shouldn't even notice.
I do wonder why somebody does pci_restore_state() when the card is

Oh. It's literally drivers/net/3c59x.c: vortex_remove_one(). So it's not
the PCI or Cardbus layer, it's the driver itself doing odd things. I don't
think it's worth worrying about. It's trying to restore the state and
disable the device that was unplugged and no longer exists ;)

(Which can definitely be a useful thing if the remove_one is done because
of some user-initiated driver removal. So I do understand why the driver
has that code, it just doesn't make sense when the removal is due to the
hardware itself going away).
