In a CET timezone (1 hour shift against UTC) I got a working kernel
using cvs update -D "november 3" which gives if_rl.c(1.121)
cardbus.c(1.42) and pci.c(1.234). I got a failing kernel using cvs
update -D "november 5" which gives if_rl.c(1.122) cardbus.c(1.42) and
pci.c(1.235). I don't think 1.234->1.235 of pci.c (committed by jhb@)
is relevant here ("Enable PCI interrupt routing for i386 SMP kernels")
because SMP is not defined in my kernel configuration file. Using
if_rl.c(1.125 but with 1.121->1.122 reverted), I have a running kernel
with cardbus(1.42) and pci.c(1.235) which is -current. I takes nearly
2 hours to get a new kernel, but if you need more testing, just ask.
