Use PCMCIA instead of CardBus?

Let me restate my original dilemma. My laptop can only use my WLAN card
when it's configured as a 16-bit PCMCIA device and not as a 32-bit CardBus
In NetBSD, this can be accomplished by typing "boot -c" at its loader prompt
and typing "disable cbb*" to disable the cbb (CardBus) drivers, which
leaves the pcic (PCMCIA) drivers to correctly configure the card. After
doing this, the card works exactly as hoped.
Similarly, I can get the same effect under Linux by disabling the "32-bit
CardBus support" option; the end result is a happily working WLAN card.
However, commenting out "device cbb" in my FreeBSD kernel results in a
non-working setup. By that, I mean that the card's lights never flicker as
it's being inserted (as it would do under NetBSD and Linux when it's being
probed). In fact, I get no debugging information at all, whether
from /var/log/messages or via dmesg.
Any ideas where I could go from here?
