Hmmm.  What specific problems have you had?  As far as I know, there
are no outstanding bugs with the PCMCIA memory card drivers.  And I
don't really see how changing the card detection method would help:
identifying memory cards is not hard.

(I'm not arguing about the new code one way or the other, since I
haven't looked at it yet.  But as long as I'm supporting the current
code, I'm obviously interested in knowing about bugs)
