Good news guys, I made some progress on this problem. Turns out it's one
or more of the optimizations Arjan puts in his kernel RPMs. If I take
them out and rebuild the RPM I can get my card to work (actually, I now
get the same problem as many other people...it won't detect the card on
its own until I restart PCMCIA.)

I'm not sure which option is the problem yet but my gut instinct tells
me it's the addition of -mregparm=3. I'll try to run some more
compilation tests soon to see which option or combination of options is
the culprit.
