Could you please make directories on your website browseable?

While at that, maybe "pcmcia_core" should be renamed to "pccard_core" in
the same way?  It's better to do it in once step.  Somebody might have to
change some scripts despite the aliases, and they will appreciate not
having to deal with intervals between 2.6.x and 2.6.y when one module was
renamed and the other wasn't.
