Does the kernel set up the PCMCIA devices properly during boot, without
userspace interaction? Or is it the "bring the network up" side of
pcmcia-cs which is required here?
The userspace side of pcmciautils is only needed on x86, and for some corner
cases on non-x86 systems... and if everything just works fine without having
to install pcmciautils on this system and even if pcmcia-cs were broken,
that'd be the best of two worlds, wouldn't it?
