Hayakawa-san is actively working on getting the code into the tree.
I'd guess they will get committed in the next few days. I think
what'd help most at this point is more helpful review of the code; I
dont know how much is needed, and its (by nature) limited to people
who understand KNF, the bus subsystem, hopefully the hardware, and
ideally people who're developers.
Plus getting _some_ CardBus framework in the tree is a
pre-requisite for supporting more CardBus devices: de21x4x,
other CardBus 10/100 cards, etc.

I think it'd be cool if you could help fix these. (Sounded like
interrupt setup/routing glitch to me, but then I didnt read far :).
