I suspect that this is related to kern/91919. This issue is also related to
a PCI-to-PCCARD adapter. The core issue is that voltage is supplied to
the PCCARD in the wrong order, which leads to the PCCARD not showing up.
(Note the order has been correct in the FreeBSD-4.11 code, which likely
explains why your card has been working in a former release.)

It is fixed already in CURRENT since March 2007 - in rev. 1.140 of
sys/dev/pccbb/pccbb.c, which actually says MFC after 3 days, but this
is another one of the forgotten MFCs... :-)

It would probably help us if you could test this fix with your old board,
just to verify.
