The problem was AFAIK that the maintainer didn't originally know
about how testing worked, and that "release critical bug"
did in fact stop packages from entering testing.
And that part of the problem was solved.
The current problem seems like that pcmcia-cs needs to be rebuilt on
alpha, ppc, and arm.

Try looking at http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/update-excuses.txt.gz
and see what might be the problem.

No idea. Please ask the respective maintainers.
