The "CODE REFERENCES" section of cardbus(9) is essentially copy-pasted from 
pcmcia(9) with an s/pcmcia/cardbus/ afterwards. That's wrong unfortunately. 
This part:

" The database of known devices exists within the file 
sys/dev/cardbus/cardbus_data.h and is generated automatically from the file 
sys/dev/cardbus/cardbusdevs.New vendor and product identifiers should be added 
to this file.  The database can be regenerated using the Makefile 

references two non-existing files: sys/dev/cardbus/cardbusdevs does not exist, 
nor does Makefile.cardbusdevs. In fact you hook up new stuff the brutal way 
(found by trying to hack some new hardware in, still not yet successful :( )

man 9 cardbus.
Try to actually do what CODE REFERENCES suggests.
Replace section CODE REFERENCES with valid data and usual procedure to add 
devices. As I was doing this with trial and error someone else most probably 
qualifies better to write a description for that.
