Unfortunately this problem description does not have very much
helpful information with regard to finding the problem. :\
Please try several different cardbus cards.
Please try setting up a serial console in the hope that you can get
some useful error messages from the kernel on card insertion.

Please also try syncing portage and emerging the latest sources.
Please try both gentoo-sources and vanilla-sources.
Until you've confirmed the same behavior with vanilla-sources I don't
think anyone on the list will put much effort into the problem.
