I'm trying to use a USB 2.0 pcmcia card in my Thinkpad 760EL. I'm using
the kernel pcmcia modules. lspci does locate the card.

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 430MX - 82437MX Mob. System Ctrlr
(MTSC) & 82438MX Data Path (MTDP) (rev 02)
00:01.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corp. 82371FB PIIX ISA [Triton I] (rev 02)
00:02.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1130 (rev 02)
00:02.1 Non-VGA unclassified device: Texas Instruments PCI1130
00:03.0 VGA compatible controller: Trident Microsystems TGUI 9320 (rev e3)
01:00.0 USB Controller: NEC Corporation USB (rev 43)
01:00.1 USB Controller: NEC Corporation USB (rev 43)
01:00.2 USB Controller: NEC Corporation USB 2.0 (rev 04)

It doesn't seem to be finding an interrupt for the Cardbus.

Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
   options: [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 00:02.0.
PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin B of device 00:02.1.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.3

Any ideas?
