The problem I have is that I have a machine here which is in regular use.
The original development for the platform finished several years back and
the CVS server which had all the userspace source on has *gone*.

So, I *really* don't care about breaking the pcmcia-cs build.  What I care
about is being able to continue to regularly use the machine _and_ test
out later kernels on the platform.

That means I've no problem with this patch to remove IN_CARD_SERVICES.
