Subject: Re: PCI device function not being enumerated [Was: PCMCIA not working on Panasonic Toughbook CF-29]

That's correct, I tested a bunch of the old distros including slackware, 
and 2.6.32 is where the problem began.

Also, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-29s effected that we tested are the 
later marks, MK4 and MK5 for certain. The MK2 CF-29 worked just fine 
because it has different hardware supporting the PCMCIA slots. I have 
not tested a MK3 but suspect it would work ok as it also uses the older 
hardware.

Thanks for your help guys!
