    I don't think it is a political issue. I think the kernel drivers
    should be promoted and I've encourated other distributions to go that
    route as well. And I hope that this leads to better drivers. I do
    maintenance work on the pcmcia-cs drivers but don't intend to add any
    new functionality.

    I've tried to update the kernel tree with fixes from individual PCMCIA
    client drivers in the pcmcia-cs package. The divergence of the core
    modules is pretty large, though, so it is not a simple "diff", and I
    know I've missed things.

    I do not have time to be a more active maintainer these days, either
    of pcmcia-cs or of the kernel PCMCIA drivers.

    I don't really know what the scope of CONFIG_ISA should be. I think
    now it is mainly used to show or hide drivers for ISA cards, rather
    than describing a system capability.
