You will require the following in your kernel config to make the T1910's 
PCMCIA slots work (from pcmcia(4)):

           # Avoid pcmcia bus space conflicts with the default io space
           # allocation on 12-bit wide busses (base 0x400 size 0xfff).
           options PCIC_ISA_ALLOC_IOBASE=0x300
           options PCIC_ISA_ALLOC_IOSIZE=0x0ff
