No need to mount/umount a PCMCIA wireless network card. When I remove my
running RT2500 card in Etch, dmesg shows
pccard: card ejected from slot 0
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:00.0 disabled
When I reinsert it:
pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 0
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> Link [LNKA] -> GSI 11 (level,
low) -> IRQ 11
rt2500 1.1.0 CVS 2005/07/10 http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:02:00.0 to 64
and my wireless connection is restored automagically.
