Update:  I had some time to look at the code in the patch and compare it 
against the cardbus_cis.c file on my system.  The patch has not been added.

I've patched my cardbus_cis.c file and recompiled the kernel.  My Xircom 
card works now with no issues.  This is the output now when the system 

dc0: <Xircom X3201 10/100BaseTX> port 0x1100-0x117f mem 
0x88000000-0x880007ff,0x88001000-0x880017ff irq 11 at device 0.0 on cardbus0

dc0: Ethernet address: 00:10:a4:b2:72:ef
dc0: [ITHREAD]

I've also submitted a follow-up PR with my results. 

Any ideas if the patch will ever be incorporated into the codebase?
