Can you supply a dump with pcmcia debug options enabled?

As a side issue:

Fixing these pcmcia problems is a real pain.  It is a nightmare getting
pcmcia configuration information for PRs.  Particularly so for Xircom,
since the branding on the outside does not always correspond with the
internal identification.  Are there any tools which can dump the tuples
from userspace?
