Is there any way to reset PCMCIA ethernet devices (simulate
having them removed and replaced) from software?

I have a (very elderly) Toshiba laptop, with a D-Link
DE-660+ pcmcia ethernet card (ne0).  It's running a (very
slightly modified) 1.5.2 system.  After it's been in suspend
mode, the network card needs to be reset before it will work
again; until that it produces 'device timeout' errors.  It'd
be convenient to be able to do this from a script...
