I replied to the original poster in the debian-user mailing
list. Essentially this is a known problem and there are a couple of
ways to fix it mentioned in a bug report against pcmcia-source. You
can either turn off MODVERSIONS when you compile the kernel, or
there's a script available in the bug report that fixes the problem,
and lastly you can wait until the maintainer puts out a new version.
