        I am planning to update my toshiba laptop from 1.3 to -current
but I have struck a glitch.  I configured and compiled a new kernel on
a machine that had the 20/8/98 current sources on it and then tried to
boot my laptop with the kernel.  When I did this my pcmcia network
card stopped working.  The card appears to be identified ok and
ifconfig configures the interface fine but if I try to use the network
with the current kernel nothing happens, ping just hangs as does
telnet.  I can interrupt the hung ping/telnet.  The card works just
fine under NetBSD 1.3 (with hack for the network card).  Any ideas on
what may be wrong?  One thing I did notice in the dmesg was that both
my pcmcia cards (tother is a gsm modem card) both appear to be
allocated the same irq!!!

The dmesg from the -current kernel looks like this:
