My Adaptec 1460 works (1.6U), but it is labelled '1460D' on the card
and shows up as
aic0 at pcmcia1 function 0: Adaptec APA-1460A SlimSCSI
scsibus0 at aic0: 8 targets, 8 luns per target
in dmesg. I do not know if/how those adapters differ.

With a TI cardbus bridge i get different bus #s for the cardbuses:
cardslot0 at cbb0 slot 0 flags 0
cardbus0 at cardslot0: bus 3 device 0
pcmcia0 at cardslot0
cbb1: interrupting at irq 11
cardslot1 at cbb1 slot 1 flags 0
cardbus1 at cardslot1: bus 4 device 0
pcmcia1 at cardslot1
Since I think they are numbered along with pci, this might be the problem.
Do other cards (real cardbus) work?
