That could be useful.  It's a little inconvenient having to fiddle with
kernel and pcmcia separately.  I imagine it would be easy enough to stick them
together as one package.

The only thing against it I can think of is the length of time it takes to
compile the whole kernel compared with the time it takes to just compile
pcmcia-modules.  Pcmcia seems to be updated a lot more frequently than the
kernel, and it could be a hassle having to recompile the entire kernel every
time just to update the pcmcia modules.
