2.2.22 pcmcia_core.o unresolved symbols

Description of problem:
ran up2date. got 2.2.22 kernel + pcmcia. rebooted. no pcmcia.
turns out the 2.2.22-7.0.2 pcmcia package contains a pcmcia_core.o
which won't modload (insmod) due to "request_mem_region" unresolved.
(note this worked fine with previous 2.2.19 kernel)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade from 2.2.19 to 2.2.22 kernel on RH 7.0 system
2. note that pcmcia fails to load
3. regress to 2.2.19 kernel :-)
All I did was run up2date. My previous 2.2.19 kernel worked like
a champ - pcmcia worked fine. After upgrading to 2.2.22 kernel I had
no pcmcia. I did "lsmod" and noticed no pcmcia_core.o or i82365.o
was loaded. humm, I thought. so I "modprobe pcmcia_core" and see
unresolved symbols. bummer.
If I did something wrong, please send a clue...
I had the same problem. Tried recompiling pcmcia-cs using the 2.2.22 RH7.0
source tree, but that gave the same unresolved symbols. Downloading the latest
pcmcia-cs source from sourceforge.net and compiling finally got things working.
This was a nasty bug for me because I installed the updates on a machine without
a CD-ROM. A PCMCIA CD-ROM would of course have not worked. I had to copy a
functional kernel with modules by floppy because without PCMCIA the machine was
otherwise inaccessible from the outside world.
