No, it was me being too dumb to write proper patches without flaws :(

a) it seems to be a cardbus card, and so you need the proper driver for it,
and that isn't axnet_cs:

Does it show up in "lspci"? What surprises me is that cardctl is informed 

b) try a more recent kernel. 2.6.12-rc1-mm4 is preferred :)
