[WORKAROUND] PCMCIA CardBus USB adapter
thanks to some off-list comments I was able to get the
CardBus adapter working.
It seems to be a (known?) bug in uhci-hdc.c and there
are some patches for different versions suggested on
the kernel mailing list, but none of them worked for
me. Anyway, when I booted with the noirqdebug option,
my system froze. I tried 2.6.7 and 2.4.2 kernels and
it made no change. When I turned off acpi, I was able
to get a "Sharing IRQ 11", but nonetheless after that
I got the "IRQ 11: nobody cared" message again.
Then, I downgraded to a 2.6.7 kernel image, booted
with inserted CardBus USB adapter and hotplug as well
as pcmcia enabled. I wait until the system is up, then
...takes some time...
Works only in this order! I tried it several times, if
I start hotplug first, then pcmcia I get a "IRQ 11:
nobody cared" again.
It's a bit clumsy, but it works. I hope the next
kernel version fixes this.
