You actually want the output of /proc/ioports while the card is inserted,
and after the card has been removed/ejected.

I don't really remember, but I suspect probably doesn't have the
reworked PCMCIA resource subsystem, so it argues with the other subsystems.

That said, "trying to free free resource" should never cause the kernel
to crash or halt - it's just a warning message and the system should just
continue on.  Something else is going wrong elsewhere.

Also, if possible, please consider checking whether this behaviour happens
with mainline or not.
