Description of problem:
After upgrade to new Errata kernel PCMCIA devices fail to load.
Investigation revelas that the PCMCIA device drivers have moved location from
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/pcmcia to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/pcmcia.
Editing /etc/init.d/pcmcia to reflect this changes fixes this issue.
Rebooting to old kernel also fixes this behaviour
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade kernel to latest errata
2. Reboot new kernel
3. Use PCMCIA devices
Actual Results: All config scripts ran as OK, however any attached PCMCIA
device failed to load/power on. lsmod shows no signs of the PCcard drivers anywhere.
Expected Results: All config scripts should have run as OK, and PCMCIA devices
should have powered on.
If you add a symbolic link between the old and new names it should fix this for now
