This probably means bus_space_read_multi_stream_2 does not work properly
for the pcmcia bus space tag the wi driver gets passed.

Sounds more like a bus_space problem to me

The wi driver is known to work on (at least) i386, sparc, macppc and sparc64,
so it is IMHO pretty unlikely to have inherent failure modes for alpha.
