I'm seeing a strangeness during the boot sequence.  An
isa->pcic->pcmcia->ep device is attached before the kernel looks to
find the root fs.  A pci->cbb->cardslot->pcmcia->ep device gets
attached *after* the kernel looks for a root device.  The upshot is
that I can't select the cardbus-connected ep0 as the root device. That
means I can't use dhpc-booting.

I guess I don't understand what imposes the probe ordering.  Is this a
problem with my config file, or does something else need to change to
move the cardbus devices up a notch?
