    Subject[git pull] more PCMCIA updates for 2.6.34 (including ioctl deprecation)
    Linus,

    a few more PCMCIA patches for 2.6.34 are available in the git repository at:
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/brodo/pcmcia-2.6.git master

    The diffstat and list of changes is below, the individual diffs are sent
    (at least) to the linux-pcmcia list. This patchset includes one
    controversial patch, titled:

    pcmcia: disable pcmcia ioctl for !ARM, prepare for removal

    Most notably, Russell King objects to it for reasons spelled out e.g. at
    http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/27/291 . I suspect the platform he is referring
    to actually does work with the PCMCIA ioctl disabled; Russell's offer from
    2008 to

    "spend some time [...] working out what it requires from the ioctl
    interface - maybe we can have a cut-down ioctl interface that bolts straight
    on as an "add on" to the new controls without being too invasive, while
    still allowing its PCMCIA bits to work."
    (http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-pcmcia/2008-April/005450.html)

    hasn't lead to any result so far; he has indicated he won't get to spending
    time on it soon. Because of the lack of progress in this regard, and for the
    other reasons spelled out in the patch, I picked up Alan's suggestion to

    "[...] push[ing] it. If it matters someone will then fix up the problem
    platform. If it isn't pushed then it lets one obscure platform stall
    progress for everyone else."
    (http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-pcmcia/2008-April/005453.html)

    Please pull from that location insofar as you agree to continue with the
    deprecation of the PCMCIA ioctl. Otherwise, I can prepare a branch
    _without_ this controversial patch to pull from.

    Thanks,
    Dominik
