SubjectRe: [QUESTIONS] Transision from pcmcia-cs to 2.4 built-in PCMCIA

cs is built into pcmcia_core.o, cb_enabler should still be there though.
It's feasible that you only need cb_enabler for the old CardBus drivers,
though - I'm not sure.

yenta_socket is the driver for CardBus i82365-compatible sockets.
i82365 no longer drives CardBus sockets, only PCMCIA.

The PCMCIA card ought to work. It's probably screwed up the IRQ routing -
it no longer knows about some of the differences between CardBus and PCMCIA
bridges. What exactly is the bridge in this machine?
