I don't know how the PCMCIA / cardbus stuff works exactely. But isn't
there a kernel thread watching the slots for insert / removal events and
calling the appropriate MI attach / detach routines of the driver? Maybe
it is possible to pass a flag to the MI attach routine to signal the
attach code that it is save to sleep during attach?
