Bug#290997: pcmcia-cs: cardmgr doesn't recognize new PCMCIA card

today I upgraded that machine to lenny. pcmcia-cs is now an empty
package, but I have pcmciautils 014-4 installed.

When I insert my card on the powerpc machine (now with kernel version
2.6.26+17), nothing happens. No audio singals, no new lines
on /var/log/syslog.

eppesuig3:~# pccardctl ident
Socket 0:
  no product info available
eppesuig3:~# pccardctl status
Socket 0:
  no card
eppesuig3:~# pccardctl reset
eppesuig3:~# pccardctl status
Socket 0:
  no card

So, the card is not recognized, but since pccardctl display one socket,
then I must think the socket is recognized.

When I insert the same card on x86 machine (same software versions), I
get this:

scarafaggio:~# pccardctl  status
Socket 0:
  5.0V 16-bit PC Card
  Subdevice 0 (function 0) bound to driver "sym53c500_cs"
scarafaggio:~# pccardctl  ident
Socket 0:
  product info: "New Media Corporation", "SCSI Bus Toaster Sym53C500",
"53C500-MHz40.", ""
  manfid: 0x0057, 0x0022
  function: 8 (SCSI)

Please note that kernel module sym53c500_cs is present even on powerpc:

eppesuig3:~# find /lib/modules/ -name \*sym53c5\*
eppesuig3:~# uname -a
Linux eppesuig3 2.6.26-1-powerpc #1 Sat Jan 10 14:00:38 CET 2009 ppc
