I have a Compaq armada 7800 with a noname pccard ethernet adapter
which used to be detected as:

rl0: <RealTek 8139 10/100BaseTX> port 0x1100-0x11ff mem 0x88000000-0x880001ff irq 11 at device 0.0 on cardbus0
rl0: Ethernet address: 00:10:60:58:60:b8
miibus0: <MII bus> on rl0
rlphy0: <RealTek internal media interface> on miibus0
rlphy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
rl0: bpf attached

After revision 1.222 of src/sys/pci/if_rl.c, the card is not detected
anymore and I get:

cardbus0: <network, ethernet> at device 0.0 (no driver attached)
cbb0: CardBus card activation failed

in place of the above message.

revision 1.222 was

 DRIVER_MODULE(rl, pci, rl_driver, rl_devclass, 0, 0);
-DRIVER_MODULE(rl, cardbus, rl_driver, rl_devclass, 0, 0);
 DRIVER_MODULE(miibus, rl, miibus_driver, miibus_devclass, 0, 0);

Adding the removed line makes the card work again.
