Except I have code in if_wi_pcmcia that *should* match it, just as an
experiment; the problem is that even the basic pcmcia "what is this card"
thing isn't happening.  (We do use the CIS strings too, btw.)

Ahh.  I wasn't sure whether or not this would work, but I figured I could
at least check to see whether or not it would; it was a really cheap 802.11b
card.  If anyone is interested in trying to do the driver work, send me
an email with a snail mail address, and I'll ship it out.
