SubjectRe: [PATCH] Making TI bridges work with kernel PCMCIA
>The driver for Cardbus/PCMCIA bridges (yenta_socket) doesn't initialize

>My experience shows that relying in the initial values of that register is

I have to use a similar workaround on pmac laptops. However, I do that
in the platform specific quirks.
