Just FYI. It seems that some rogue Windows driver wrote garbage
over the CIS space on my card -- yes, that area is writeable! --

The fix was to put a Debugger() call in pcmcia_cis.c, just after
where it maps the CIS space, and then do a write to the appropriate
place, voila, the card is healthy again.
