Description of problem:
When booting a laptop with a 3c574_cs network card, configured to bring eth0 up
on boot, the error message that is printed says module 3c574_cs couldn't be
loaded, which gives the impression the card might not be brought up at all
because the module is not available.  After loading pcmcia, the driver is
properly loaded and the interface is brought up, as expected (and implied by the
`delaying initialization' message), but the early failure to load the module is

On a Dell Inspiron 3500 I encountered this same problem with this
card. However, ethernet does not successfully autostart even after the
delay and must be manually started. Changing the pcmcia and network
start orders worked around the problem for me, as does increasing the
delay between re-initialization attempts.

Comment 2 Ronny Buchmann 2004-04-18 09:01:41 UTC
Is there a reason why pcmcia is started after network not before?

Changing pcmcia to start at 9 (chkconfig: 2345 9 96) solves this issue
and also bug 116205.

I just started seeing this as well with the 2.6.5-1.3xx kernels.  I
can't rememeber if pcmcia was being started earlier, but I do recall
that there were no module start errors.
