Description of problem:
my HP ob900 laptop works with the PCMCIA socket driver yenta_socket.
this driver was successfully probed by anaconda & is declared as such
in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia as $PCIC.
however, at boot time, /etc/init.d/pcmcia does not even attempt to
load it. as a result, no PCMCIA-based service can work. this
includes -- for me -- my xircom network driver.
work-around is after boot, run the following:
1. modprobe yenta_socket
2. service pcmcia restart
3. ifup eth0 (all the network dependent services are restart by my
customized dhclient-hooks script)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot the box
yenta_socket is not loaded so I have access to my PCMCIA cards
I should have access to my PCMCIA cards

patch for pcmcia-cs shipped with fc1
I have tried to make this patch as clean as possible: it does not only apply to
my personnal case...
also see the same bug -- also with a patch -- on fc2 #132394
