pcmcia-cs 3.1.28-2 is on crack

I've been frustrated by pcmcia-cs 3.1.28-2 since installing it.  I've
been running sid on my VAIO PCG-XG28 for several months with no
troubles.  My PCMCIA network card is a Linksys Fast Ethernet 10/100.
Before 3.1.28-2, cardmgr and cardinfo saw the card as an NE2000
compatible, the pcnet_cs.o kernel module would be used to drive this
card, and all was well.  Now, however, cardmgr insists that the card is
an Asix AX88190, and wants to use the axnet_cs module, which doesn't work.

There is no problem with the card; I have used alternate cards and seen
the same behavior.  There is no problem with my laptop, as I'm still
able to use my wireless NIC with no trouble.

I'm using the kernel modules included with pcmcia-source, not those
built with kernel 2.4.9.  I applied the patches in Debian bug 109060 to
pcmcia-source to get the modules to build with kernel 2.4.9.

Can anybody help?  Thanks in advance.
