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):

How reproducible:

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

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
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
