Kernel pcmcia code works fine with 2.4.0-test8 and my Xircom RBEM56G100TX,
in fact I am writing from my laptop connected through it. See lsmod output
and relevant part of .config.

[asuardi@princess asuardi]$ lsmod

The only hack I've done is to work around the known cardmgr issue with
the 2.4 API not providing proper device names.

I haven't tried 2.2.18pre7 but pre3 broke tulip_cb for the Xircom and
pre5 hadn't fixed it yet.
