   Yes, this worked also!  I could only test on 2.0 though.

Ha this is interesting !

I suspect hardware here. The PCMCIA socket is powered up just before
calling wdcattach(). The power up function waits for the PCMCIA chip to
assert that it is ready, but the pcmcia chip probably doesn't wait
for the drive to be ready.

If so, it should be enouth to add the delay in the wdc_pcmcia.c code.
=46rom your tests, half a second should be enouth. Can you test the attac=
patches (one for 2.0, one for current) ?
