Description of problem:
I've tried for weeks to get PCMCIA working on my RH 9 machine (A Dell
Inspiron 4150) with no avail.  Things work perfectly under 2.4.x, and
wouldn't do anything other than oops under the 2.6 test kernels
(either binaries or rebuilt from source)  

Running out of options, I grabbed the official test9 release from
kernel.org - built it using the exact config that didn't work with the
 kernel RPMs, installed it, and it works "out of the box."

I'm not sure what causes the breakage in the test kernel RPMS, but it
sure seems borked.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the test kernels on a machine w/ PCMCIA sockets
2. try to use a PCMCIA card

Actual Results:  always a failure to load or bind, and often a kernel
