I have had a problem until 2.6.20 was out with pcmciautils (it did not
recognise the second function of multi-functions pcmcia cards that
needed a firmware .cis file), and the only way to use it was with
cardmgr, way after Nov 2005 :-).

Now it is solved (modulo that sometime the pcmcia modem is ttyS1,
sometime ttyS2, but that's another history --- and probably my fault).
But I wonder if similar problems are hidden away... what about put the
ioctls under a normally-disabled option and let a kernel out with it?
