[PATCHES] 11-pcmciaresource

I applied the patches to an unmodified 2.6.4 kernel and compiled with gcc 
3.3 on an HP ze1115 notebook. All patches installed; however, there were 
some offsets and a couple with fuzz. While rebuilding the kernel and 
modules, I found the following warnings:

drivers/ide/legacy/ide-cs.c compiles with 2 warnings involving the use of 
MOD_INC_USE_COUNT and MOD_DEC_USE_COUNT. This is an old pair of warnings, 
not related to these changes.

drivers/pcmcia/rsrc_mgr.c has a warning in function 'find_io_region' at 
line 623 - large integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type.

drivers/pcmcia/ds.c has a warning in function 'ds_ioctl', line 227, 
implicit declaration of 'validate_mem'.

I tested the new code using an Adaptec SlimSCSI 1460B card attached to a 
CD-RW drive, an EZ-Gig pcmcia to ide converter, and a Linksys WPC54G 
wireless interface using the ndiswrapper code and the Windows XP driver. 
All 3 cards worked perfectly.
