Hi Pavel!

Was just looking at your cardmgr-compilation-fix patch when your message
appeared in my inbox :)

If my patchset for 2.5.67 is merged in its completeness, there's no ioctl
cardmgr can use - it will fail to load anyway. However, I intend to fix this
for the next patchset: I'll keep backwards (i.e. cardmgr) compability in
various levels (complete / emulation / resource-management only / none).
This means I'll make sure cardmgr compilation will not fail any longer, of 
course :)

This, as well as the cardmgr-compilation-fix, I'll try to push Linus-wards
very very soon.

Many thanks for your work!
