Problems with dual SonyEricsson GC79 cardbus card

Hi,

I'm having problems with a SonyEricsson GC79 CardBus card under
FreeBSD 5.3-BETA6. The card consists of both a WiFi device and a
GSM/GPRS modem. Using ndis I can get the WiFi part to work just
fine. However, the modem part will not attach because of
BUS_ALLOC_RESOURCE failures.

>From an earlier discussion on freebsd-current with the subject
"802.11g/GPRS broadcom cardbus" it seems like Nicolas had the modem
part working sometime in early June. Unfortunately it no longer works
under 5.3-BETA6.

Nicolas, does your card still work on more recent FreeBSDs?

Perhaps somebody else has some ideas?

Cheers,
Björn
