I filed a bug report against hotplug and it has been closed now by a
new upload. The solution implemented was a low-priority debconf
question which asked whether to not use the logical hotplug interface,
and the default is false, i.e. use a logical interface. So what do we
do with this? Pre-seed the debconf value to true if PCMCIA hardware is
detected? I'm not particularly fond of this solution, but if we want
to have Cardbus network card support in d-i for sarge I'm not sure
what else to do.
