The solution here is to remove pcmcia-modules-* from testing and
unstable, while leaving pcmcia-cs in. We need cardctl, but we do not
really need precompiled modules from pcmcia-cs; the ones from the kernel
will do.

I would also like to see pcmcia-cs 3.2.2-1.2 go in, or d-i will not be
able to support pcmcia installs. It's currently stuck in inoming as it
has NEW components; and it happens to fix bug #170188..
Someone who can want to give it a nudge?

(Bug #198285 is a non-issue; downgrading it.)
