Yes, it was activated. i.e it says pccard_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf
but it isn't running when I look closer after a boot, so I added
pccardd_flags="-z" which used to help. But not this time.

When I put a card in the port it says:
end (ffffffff) > sc->memlimit (803fffff)
pccard0: Card has no functions!
cbb0: PC Card card activation failed

And that's it.

So I put in the pccardd_flags="-z"

But that makes no difference. The machine doesn't like pccard when
running CURRENT.
