SubjectRe: Yenta CardBus IRQ storm disabling interrupt
Russell,

I doubt that this issue is specifically related to the card being
used. I just recalled the fact that the IRQ probing done by the
yenta_socket driver code has run into the IRQ storm at
boot time as well, without any cards in the slots.

Another piece of info for the pile.
