Why not just put #warning into that file?  I understand you want to
discourage independent PCMCIA drivers from using that file.  Suppose a
driver includes pcmcia/memory.h but doesn't need it.  Then the driver
developers won't notice the problem early.  And when pcmcia/memory.h is
finally removed, it will be a compile error rather than a gentle warning.

By the way, I hope you are not removing support for pcmciamtd.  I have a
linear flash card.  Unfortunately, pcmciamtd is currently marked as broken
and didn't work for me last time I tried (about a month ago).  I was using
the latest 2.6 kernel.  But I'm ready to help with testing.
