It looks like you get this as soon that the driver touches the hardware.
Maybe there is some other hardware at that address.  Check
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts, try using a different I/O window.  I see you were
using 0x0140-0x017f.  Try 0x0400-0x04ff range.  Put this to
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts and comment out all other "include port"

include port 0x400-0x4ff

You may still want to debug __hfa384x_cmd_no_wait() to make sure that
it's the I/O that causes the panic.
