However that is what happens, this is my callstack after
adding some prints:

soc_pcmcia_add_one: pcmcia HW init failed
sa11x0-pcmcia: probe of sa11x0-pcmcia failed with error -2

It bails out when trying to get the "reset" gpio.

I'm trying to figure out how this can happen.

On the plus side: this minor snag is all the problems I have.
All other GPIOs work exactly as they should.
