That's a little weird, because IO cards just don't report those things.

Could you grab the cbdump.c program from pcmcia.arm.linux.org.uk, and
dump out:

- cardctl status
- cardctl config
- cbdump

with the card inserted please?  We can then see exactly what state
the kernel thinks stuff should be in vs the state of the actual socket
