There were some bug reports about this.  Having plugger installed at the
same time was causing the problem at one point.  Most likely using 4.72
instead of 4.7 is your beest solution.

pcmcia needs to be recompiled specifically for each kernel compilation.
This means if you use the standard potato 2.2.14, you can use standard
potato pcmcia, since they were compiled together.  If you're compiling
2.2.14 for yourself, you'll need to recompile pcmcia for yourself too.
