Hi Warner,

somebody mentioned a "sio" patch from you which was required
to get his PCMCIA card to work via newbus.

Where are these patches available ?
Do you think these patches could help me ?
When do you think you'll committ them to -current ?

Maybe you already saw my report on -current.

The 3COM 3CCFE575BT doesn't work, is recognized but there
are errors popping up:

I tried now two -current snaps from:
- 2003-08-24
- 2003-09-08
In both snaps the card is recognized on boot. but cardbus
can't be activated.
In -current from 2003-09-08 boot messages:
cbb0: <ToPIC100 PCI-CardBus Bridge> at device 11.0 on pci0

I tried the 3COM Card in the PCMCIA Slot cbb0 as well on
my Toshiba Satellite PRO 4360. No difference.
