Well yes, I did make a very specific suggestion on the sourceforge
forum that you have not tried.

No it is not an irq issue.

These resources do not mean what you think they mean.  The resources
in config.opts are what you'd like to be made available for PCMCIA
cards.  You've specified various ranges that are already allocated by
the CardBus bridge devices.  When the PCMCIA subsystem goes to check
these, it finds that they're all already allocated, which is no good.

In principle, the kernel should recognize that it can free all these
resources at boot time.  But it doesn't currently do that.
