You're arbitrarily nuking things from the source tree. Don't do
that. :-) You need to enable a couple of meta-items in the kernel
config (e.g. "support for hot-pluggable devices" and the generic
top-level "Wireless LAN" option), but not enable specific device
drivers (e.g. "PCMCIA/CardBus support"). If you don't enable the
options in the kernel configuration, they won't get built by the
kernel build, and won't conflict with the pcmcia-cs modules.
