Have you tried other PCMCIA or CARDBUS cards? Or is this problem
specific to this "CARDBUS to USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Adapter"?

I am about to buy a USB 2.0 / Firewire CARDBUS card, and I am using
the yenta driver together with a TI_1410 chip.  According to the lspci
informaton you have a TI_1520 chip.

If the brand that makes your CARDBUS adapter is selling USB2/Firewire
combination cards then I am willing to buy one and see what happens
here. So if you are interested please let me know the brand of your
CARDBUS adapter.
