In the PCMCIA device (not socket) driver you need to allocate a 
"struct dev_node_t" for each PCMCIA card (function) you handle, and a
pointer to this must be stored in instance->dev.

work. However, this is unrelated to the "dev" above -- the one mentioned
above is about the "/dev/" entry for the PCMCIA card, while the latter is
the device of the PCMCIA card socket(!) as represented in the /sys tree.
