Subject[patch][2.5] setup default dma_mask for cardbus devices
Devices hanging off a cardbus bridge don't get a default dma mask which
causes problems later when doing pci_alloc_consistent. Patch has been
tested with tulip based ethernet.

Linux Tulip driver version 1.1.13 (May 11, 2002)
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address
printing eip:
*pde = 00000000

CPU: 0
EIP: 0060:[<c011100c>] Not tainted
