Description of problem:
I am running FC5 on an IBM Thinkpad 600E. My pcmcia cards are not recognized.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot computer
2. Look at dmesg output
cs: pcmcia_socket1: cardbus cards are not supported
pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 1
The work arround that made pcmcia cards work on my thinkpad 600E was to append
the following to the /etc/grub.conf kernel parameters
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5

If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
Same thing applies to IBM600E on Fedora Core 6 FC6
Cardbus needs IRQ 14, but with ACPI on, it is not available.
I used to use a MASK at boot to control this, but it does not seem to work.
As of 2.6.19-1 (FC6) it is still this way, with ACPI on, no cardbus.
Let me know what is needed.
Update to F7 fixed the problem.
