Sorry for responding so late but I was sidetracked by several issues.

I added the above reserve to the boot parameters, it shows up on the Kernel 
command line in dmesg,  but dmesg still displays

pcmcia: parent PCI bridge Memory window: 0xfd000000 - 0xfdffffff

I would have expected the above line to not appear - use a different memory 
range due to the kernel command line "reserve".

When I insert a PCMCIA card, it still gets the machine check.

It seems that the reserve does not work.  Memory range 0xfd000000-0xfdffffff 
is NOT excluded.

What should I do?
