Dell Inspiron 5150 and PCMCIA lock ups

I just got a new Dell Inspiron 5150 thinking it would be a nice
replacement for my 8100. So far, I'm not impressed. The BroadCom
BCM440x ethernet controller isn't supported, and everytime I insert a
PCMCIA card, the machine locks.
I'm running 5.1-RELEASE, but I want to move to -CURRENT if I can get a
network connection. Basically, if the machine is up and running, and I
insert the card, it locks (no console messages, nothing). The only
solution is to hold the power button down until the machine shuts down.
If I have the card inserted at boot time, the machine gets to:
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/ad2s3a
Then locks up the same way. I have tried NEWCARD and OLDCARD. I am
testing with a Cisco 340, 350, and a Zoom 56K data/fax modem. All
behave the same way. I've booted with and without ACPI. I have not
tried -STABLE/4.8 yet. Here are my PCMCIA vitals with the following
debugs set under NEWCARD:
cbb0: <TI4510 PCI-CardBus Bridge> irq 10 at device 4.0 on pci2
cbb0: PCI Memory allocated: d0200000
cardbus0: <CardBus bus> on cbb0
pccard0: <16-bit PCCard bus> on cbb0
cbb0: cbb_power: CARD_VCC_0V and CARD_VPP_0V 
cbb0: card inserted: event=0x00000000, state=00000000 (*)
cbb0: Unsupported card type detected (*)
(*) I get this message regardless of whether or not I have a PCMCIA card
inserted. Even with the above debugs enabled, I get no messages when
inserting an actual card. The machine just locks up hard.
I'm really hoping there's some hope here. So far, the only good news is
that sound works. Thanks for any advice you may offer.
