That's not the right way to fix the problem. The system will not lock
up if you use a kernel that has APM support compiled in. (I suspect
the starting and stopping is done automatically by cardmanager, but
I'm not sure.)

I don't want this on my system. The cards already are started and
stoped correctly _if_ I use a kernel with APM support.
