I have a XIRCOM REM56-100 Ethernet 10/100 on my laptop that worked well a month ago.
Then i went away from my computer for a month, and updated my FBSD when i came back, which was a something like Sept.3rd.
The card now fails with "
CIS too long -- truncating
pccard0: Card has no functions!
cbb0: PC Card card activation failed
I've remade a kernel on Sept 8th, changing few options in order to check, but the same error remained.
A bit of googling showed me the driver is broken, but i didn't read that the person that had the same problem had it solved.
Eventually, though I mailed the freebsd-current mailing list a few times, my message has never been published. Therefor, I use this bug report.
Since the card can't be used, I cannot update my system to check if it's been fixed.
