Yes. This has unfortunately been a known problem for a long time.

Very nice! And the solution seems so simple. :)

I have an 8-bit PCMCIA network card, which already worked before:
  D-Link DFE-670TXD
And it still works after applying your patch! Good job!

Tested on the latest A1200 model with ACA1230.

I have uploaded a GENERIC kernel with your patch under
for anybody else who wants to test it with other cards.
