For a good many people, yes it does work. For this hardware it doesn't work.
pcmcia_core and yenta_socket are the only two modules I can load, and once
loaded they can't be unloaded. Trying to rmmod yenta_socket yeilds a segfault
and the module remains in a (deleted) state.

The kernel pcmcia can't get the sockets set up correctly. It used to work; on 1
socket only and randomly blew up the kernel. The other socket hung the
interrupts.
