I fscked up that test. The results I reported as being with
prerelease were actually with a messed up test11. The whole
"Bad PCI invocation" error was a red herring, sorry.

I have since gone in a tested test12-pre5, test12-pre6 and
test12-pre8. test12-pre5 works. test12-pre6 fails utterly.
It looks like Cardbus was just completely hosed in that
tree, because I can't get my network card (3c575) to be recognized
by that kernel, either. I checked the patches and Andrew's
"04X" change went into test12-pre8. I just tested test12-pre8
with both your latest hotplug script, David, and with the
pertinent "0x" locations changed to "04x". Both scripts fail
to load usb-ohci.

Bottom line, I have yet to see a test12-pre6+ kernel load usb-ohci
whether or not I use "04x" in the hotplug script. Something else
is messed up here.

For the Cardbus hotplug event, is it expected that the hotplug
debug info would be dumped after the insert event is processed
and the required driver is loaded?

With test12-pre5, I get this when I insert the BusPort Mobile:

Thanks and sorry for the inaccurate info last night.
