Trying to add support for a Linksys WCF12

I bought a Linksys WCF12 for my new Zaurus and just decided to see what
would happen if I popped it into my CF to PCMCIA adapter and put it into
my laptop.

pccard1: CIS version unknown (major=1, minor=0)
pccard1: CIS info: Linksys, Wireless CompactFlash Card, , 
pccard1: Manufacturer code 0x28a, product 0x673
pccard1: function 0: network adapter, ccr addr 3e0 mask 1
pccard1: function 0, config table entry 1: I/O card; irq mask ffff; iomask 6, iospace 0-3f; io16 irqshare irqpulse irqlevel
pccard1: <unknown card> (manufacturer=0x028a, product=0x0673) at function 0
pccard1:    CIS info: Linksys, Wireless CompactFlash Card, 

So I said to myself "Hey, I'll add a couple of lines to some equivalent
of usbdevs."  I found pccarddevs and found that Manufacturer code 0x28a
is already taken by IODATA2, so maybe IO Data makes them and LinkSys
brands them.

>From pccarddevs:
vendor IODATA2                  0x028a  I-O DATA

I added this line to the IODATA2 section:
product IODATA2 WCF12          0x0673 Linksys, Wireless CompactFlash Card

I ran makefile -f Makefile.pccarddevs, which did regenerate
pccarddevs.h.  I made a new kernel and modules with make kernel
KERNCONF=LAPTOP and rebooted.  According to dmesg, it still doesn't
recognize the card.

Since I see the WCF11 in pccarddevs, I suppose that it is possible to
use a cf card as a pccard.  Obviously, I've missed modifying somthing to
know about this card.  Could somebody point me in the right direction?
