SubjectRe: i82365 PCI-PCMCIA bridge still not working in 2.4.0-test11
Manually inputting i365_base=0x1030 when loading the module results in 
the same freeze - nothing works at all, had to do a full hardware reset.
This is on the latest 2.4.0-prerelease...

David, any luck on your side? Sorry for the long absence, been a bit
busy and then I went on holiday.

Any chance it's due to IRQ sharing? Since I've been struggling to use my
PCMCIA modem under kernel 2.2.x too... pcmcia-cs detects it and minicom
can dial using it but nothing else... :( the PCMCIA controller is on IRQ
11, same as my video card. Haven't tried swapping it since the cables
are a mess to reattach :p

A belated Happy New Year,
