Problem with ide-cs

With kernel 3.0, my external hard drive attached to a PCMCIA card reports "irq 
11: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)". The driver in 
question is ide-cs. When I try irqpoll, the device works correctly. Naturally, 
the interrupt is shared with yenta, the PCMCIA adapter driver. In addition, that 
same interrupt is used by a BCM4318 Cardbus device.

I plan on preparing a Bugzilla entry for this problem, but I'm not quite ready. 
What I would like to know if there is any documentation on what kinds of changes 
are needed to fix the problem.
