Arch Handbook on pccarddevs.h

I am currently having a go at writing a device driver for the pccard
based smartcard reader Omnikey CM4040.

The arch handbook states in the chapter on pccards [1] that there is a
manual step involved in generating pccarddevs.h from pccarddevs, using
Makefile.pccarddevs.  However, it very much looks like said header file
is generated automagically, and I cannot find the respective Makefile at
all in my RELENG_6 sources.  Also, there are special instructions for
committers which probably aren't applicable anymore either.

Can someone confirm that the relevant sections from [1] are out of date,
and not applicable to 6.x/7.x anymore?
