Orinoco_cs quit working, RequestIRQ: Resource in use

I'm upgrading this Dell Inspiron 7500, RedHat 9 system to the 2.6
kernel, and it's almost all working.  All, except for my wireless

It works in 2.4.21, but doesn't work in 2.6.0-test9.

After reading this list, I see that one approach is to edit
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts and comment out the 'exclude irq *' line that I
don't want to reserve for something else.

Ok, but if it works in 2.4.21 and I haven't changed that file, something
else must have changed.  After looking at /proc/interrupts, I see that
IRQ 9 was the irq the card used to use, but nothing is using it now.

I even tried 'rmmod orinoco_cs; modprobe orinoco_cs irq_list=9', which
installed the module with no error in dmesg, but didn't show up in
/proc/interrupts and eth0 didn't show up either.

Does anyone have any advice?  (I'm not subscribed to this list)
