hi folks,

I'm having trouble getting some pcmcia network cards to work with
yesterday's -current in another old laptop (a "Toshiba Satellite Pro")
that I picked up recently.  the pcmcia controller in this machine is:

pcic0 at isa0 port 0x3e0-0x3e1 iomem 0xd0000-0xdffff
pcic0: controller 0 (Intel 82365SL Revision 1) has sockets A and B
pcic0: controller 1 (Intel 82365SL Revision 1) has no sockets
pcmcia0 at pcic0 controller 0 socket 0
pcmcia1 at pcic0 controller 0 socket 1
pcic0: controller 0 detecting irqs with mask 0xde18:..9..11
pcic0: using irq 9 for socket events

I've tried two different network cards.  the first is the same card
that I had problems with in PR 11285, which shows up with:

ne2 at pcmcia1 function 0 port 0x400-0x40f port 0x410-0x41f
ne2: Linksys Combo EthernetCard Ethernet
ne2: where did the card go?

the other card is a "3com EtherLink III LAN+Modem PC Card", aka. 3c562.
this one says:

ep1 at pcmcia1 function 0 port 0x400-0x40f: 3Com 3c562 33.6 Modem/10Mbps Etherne
ep1: wrote 0x7ff to TX_AVAIL_THRESH, read back 0x7c7. Interface disabled
ep1: couldn't configure controller

both of these cards work fine in another machine with the same kernel.
any ideas?
