No they aren't - certainly not for a while.  A fair amount of PCMCIA
changes went into post-2.6.7, and, since most people with PCMCIA only
bother testing the major kernel releases, I'm very unhappy to apply
anything other than bug fixes or anything else until 2.6.8.

Once 2.6.8 is out, I want to push at least some more of the original
pcmcia-resource patch set and maybe some of Dominik's other patches.
