Now it detects the "pccard"! Still it has some issues left I think.

1) During kernel compilation, there is a warnig (two times) in function:
pd6729_set_io_map in lin 241 "Warning: Comparison is always false due to
limited range of data type".

2) When the pd6729 controller and the pccard are detected successfully
this driver doesn't beep two times as the i82365 and yenta drivers do.

3) When I restart the pcmcia system "service pcmcia restart" I still get
onne message: "cs: unable to map card memory!"
