Hm... is there a file /etc/pcmcia/config.opts ? And does running
pcmcia-socket-startup (either located in /lib/udev/pcmcia-socket-startup or
in {/usr}/sbin/pcmcia-socket-startup) help? The problem is that this is a
system where an userspace-based database needs to tell the kernel what
ioports and iomem are available to be used for the PCMCIA subsystem. This
data is still stored in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, and lspcmica -vvv shouldn't
                         Available ioports:      --none--
                         Available iomem:        --none--
if this resource database was "sent" to the kernel.
