That's likely a problem with the bus assignment on your machine.  You
can try adding pci=assign-busses to the kernel command line.

Madwifi cannot be blamed if lspci cannot see the device.

That's the easy part.  Just make sure that CONFIG_CARDBUS and
CONFIG_YENTA_RICOH are defined in the kernel's .config file.
