Description of problem:
When ejecting a Xircom CreditCard Ethernet 10/100+ Modem 56 PCMCIA card
(CEM56-100) I get a flurry of OOPS messages and the machine becomes unusable.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a Xircom CEM56-100 card
2. Wait for initialization
3. Eject the card (without previously doing cardctl eject)

Actual Results:  Nonending series of OOPS messages on console and machine
becomes unusable. Unfortunately no OOPS get saved on disk.

Expected Results:  No OOPS and machines continues to work without problem.

Additional info:

This bug was introduced with the errata kernel 2.4.18-18.8.0 to fix the bug #76233.

I don't get an lockup oops on eject, I get this on the console:

Comment 2 diego.santacruz 2002-11-26 13:43:33 UTC
I got this problem with previous kernels (see bug #74735), but with the latest
update (2.4.18-18.8.0) it gets very much worse: machine becomes unusable.

Comment 3 Martin C. Messer 2002-11-26 13:47:34 UTC
Hmm, I see. I'm running the latest 7.3 kernel, 2.4.18-18.7.x.

Comment 4 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:13 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
