I just discovered one more potential problem: my V40.68 A2000
developer's kernel has card.resource and carddisk.device in the resident
list, so loadbsd 2.4 will (probably, I haven't tried it yet) tell the
kernel that my 2500 is a 1200.  Loadbsd should probably do an additional
probe of the resources list to see if card.resource appears there.  If
it doesn't then the card.resource in the resident list is a red herring
and it's really a 2000/2500/500/1000.
