so i've got this laptop running -current (ran cvs update this morning
and rebuilt everything) with two cardbus slots, but cards are a
the bios (acpi bios v1.40, 12/29/99) gives me three options for the pc
card slots: auto-selected, pcic compatible, and cardbus/16-bit. i've
tried kernels with pcic and with cbb, and a few cards, both pcmcia (a
3c562 and two 10 meg cards) and cardbus (a 3c575b).
with the bios set to auto and pcic in the kernel, pc cards work, but
only if i put in two cards. cardbus, of course, doesn't work.
bios: auto, kernel: ccb -> cbb devices are "NOT USED" because of
unconfigured interrupt. needless to say, no cards work.
bios: pcic compatible, kernel: cbb -> same as above.
bios: cardbus/16-bit, kernel: cbb -> the cardbus card works, but pc
cards hang the machine. the kernel prints (with ten fingers)

and then stops. no ddb, no nothing. when i put in the 3c562 in the
first case above, i get

instead of the one line about ep0.
as i delve into the internals of the pcmcia stuff and can hopefully
introduce a panic (or at least a call to the debugger at the right
point, if i can find it), is there anything specific i should be
