I have the same situation: both hotplug and pci hotplug in my 2.4.20 and the 
cardbus is seen as a pci device (Texas Instruments PCI1420).

I do not have an ethernet pcmcia card; my understanding is that probably if I 
get/use a cardbus (not pcmcia) card then I don't need pcmciacore (the hotplug 
doc even says pcmcia-cs may *interphere* badly with the code; on the other 
hand, somewhere in the kernel helps it is also said that with some "pcmcia" 
cards you need the pcmcia-cs package, so your understanding is also probably 
correct. All in all, the whole thing IMHO is a real mess.

Thanks anyway for your notes. I have also noted in /var/log/syslog the 
following error message about hotplug:
/etc/hotplug/usb.agent: setup usbcore for USB product 0/0/0
modprobe: can't locate module usbcore
/etc/hotplug/usb.agent: missing kernel or user mode driver usbcore

I do have usbcore not as a module but built directly into the kernel. Do you 
think I can simply ignore the message or do I need to compile usb support 
(usbcore) as a module ??
