No, no workarounds are possible, this is a bug that needs to be fixed.
There are no older kernel packages that would help here; only 2.6.18 is
supported by etch, anything older than 2.6.15 is unsupported by the current
udev, and TTBOMK this bug has been present throughout the 2.6 kernel series.

But I do have a patch in the works, which fixes the problem with the pcmcia
driver; I'm just working still on getting full coverage for the issues with
SMP modules identified in bug #410933 before pushing it out.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
