I'll do that just as soon as I can ifconfig up the interface ;-)  Probably
from the terminal room sometime next week.

So did I.  However, if you look at the README.CardBus file, it specifically
says that the 3C575 is an ep device.  Also, the VENDOR_ID and PRODUCT_IDs
for my card match those in if_ep_cardbus.c

There also appears to be a hack in if_ep_cardbus.c to force the code to
treat the card as a VORTEX card despite the fact that it's a BOOMERANG.

Perhaps the ex device isn't ready yet.  I'll go take a look at that source.

D'oh!  I guess that I've been staring at the code too long.  Trying that
just didn't cross my mind.  I'll give it a try.
