why send your email twice? It never helps.

I guess the IRQ sharing requires special love in all drivers.

pcmcia-socket-startup, if a CIS override file is needed for your CF

See if adding the ids for this flash device to the ide_cs and
pata_pcmcia drivers helps.

Look at the source and the mailing list re a Transcend flash that was
added very recently. See /usr/src/linux/Documentation/pcmcia/ too.

If your bridge driver is correct then it should work. The IRQ issue
worries me though. :\
