the lucent cards require a very large chunk of i/o port space:
wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0 port 0x380-0x3bf: could not get mac address, attach failed
Most likely there's a conflict in that range (they seem to be fairly
common on some laptops); try playing with the PCIC_ISA_ALLOC_IOBASE
and PCIC_ISA_ALLOC_IOSIZE config options (or patching the kernel
globals pcic_isa_alloc_iobase and pcic_isa_alloc_iosize).
We should probably arrange to reserve ranges mentioned by pnpbios so
they don't get dynamically allocated...
