Can you compile the kernel with kallsyms info? That would make the output 
a whole lot more readable.

Can you test with another type of card, just to see if it is specific to 
that particular driver, or it happens with any card insertion event?

It's entirely possible that they have different behaviours for screaming 
interrupts and/or just different setup.

I can't tell what your handlers are, but there are two of them, and they 
are the same, which makes me strongly suspect that it's just the two 
"yenta_socket" handlers for the two slots (sharing the same interrupt).

Which implies that when the card was inserted and powered on, it started 
enabling the interrupt early, before the low-level driver had had a chance 
to register _its_ interrupt handler.

Hmm. That would be "PCI_CLASS_SERIAL_USB", but clearly:

No USB driver there, so the driver never even loaded. The problem probably 
happened immediately on card insertion, and is likely card-indepdendent. 
But it would be nice to have that confirmed by testing.

It seems to be a TI 1520 chipset:

	00:0d.0 Class 0607: 104c:ac55 (rev 01)

	Yenta: CardBus bridge found at 0000:00:0d.0 [0000:0000]
	Yenta: Enabling burst memory read transactions
	Yenta: Using CSCINT to route CSC interrupts to PCI
	Yenta: Routing CardBus interrupts to PCI
	Yenta TI: socket 0000:00:0d.0, mfunc 0x00001022, devctl 0x64
	Yenta: ISA IRQ mask 0x00a8, PCI irq 11
	Socket status: 30000020

and everything looks good in that the interrupt probing seems to have been 
happy at this stage - so at least the CSC interrupt is working right.

There used to be somebody who knew the TI chips on the list - I've only 
worked with the older ones. But everything _looks_ fine.
