Hm.  If the hardware is really a PCI-cardbus bridge, and its on a
modern laptop, and its' been attached in "legacy" (hw compat) mode,
and it's running an old 1.4.x kernel without the pcibios fixes...
will the interrupt from the pccbb be mapped correctly?

On my laptops I think the answer was "no", but YMMV.
