I don't think this is a serious problem.  It's probably just a version
conflict, coming from pcmcia-modules depending on a particular version of
the kernel.

At worst you can just uninstall pcmcia-modules (and maybe pcmcia-cs).  Then
you can upgrade the new kernel and you should get no problems then.  After
that you can reinstall pcmcia-modules and pcmcia-cs.

Note, you probably want to keep a copy of the deb file for pcmcia-cs, since
once it's uninstalled you won't be able to download it again with apt-get
(your network will be gone!).  If you've recently downloaded it but can't
find it, try looking in /var/cache/apt/archives/.  I presume you created the
deb file for pcmcia-modules yourself with make-kpkg modules_image.
