Sorry Brian.  I should have made sure this happened.  We'll try to
keep you in the loop more.

I assume you only build pcmcia-* pkgs for i386 right?  Porters take
care of pcmcia-modules-* for other arches?

FYI, I do think we may need to have another kernel flavor, with an IDE
patch.  I don't know if that would require a different set of modules
or not, though.
