The pcmcia_get_window() function should never have been exported in
the first place; you can make that static in all cases.

As for the rest... the bulkmem services are/were only ever used by the
"linear flash" memory card drivers in the pcmcia-cs package.  I had
not imported these drivers into the kernel tree because at the time
I'd thought that there could be a unification of the MTD code with the
current kernel MTD support (which was partly derived from the
pcmcia-cs MTD code), but I never had time to do it.
