           Summary: Repeatable hang on boot with PCMCIA card present
    Kernel Version: 2.6.17+
            Status: NEW
          Severity: high
             Owner: linux-pcmcia at lists.infradead.org

Most recent kernel where this bug did *NOT* occur:
Distribution: Ubuntu Edgy
Hardware Environment: Dell Inspiron 8100 + Linksys WPC11

WPC11).  The symptoms are:

    If the card is present during boot an error of "Unknown interrupt or fault
at EIP ..." appears.

    If the card is not present there is no error.

bitfield instead of p_state and state".  The commit# is


However I am still seeing this problem with the latest -RC releases, including
