We downloaded pcmcia-cs 3.2.4 from the same site and downloaded.
But it will only generate and install cb_enabler.o file if CONFIG_PCMCIA is
disabled in the kernel configuration.
In that case our driver is compiling well but it is is giving Kernel panic
when we are hotplugging it out. The following is the dump
But the driver was working in RH7.1, only in RH 8.0 it is behaving in this
Has some kernel interrupt handling routine has been changed?

<0>Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler'
In interrupt handler - not syncing
But if we explicitly gives "cardctl eject" and then plug it out then it is not
panicking.Does it mean pcmcia-cs tree does not support hot swappability for
because we have to explicitly free the resources allocated by pcmcia by "soft
ejecting" and then plug it out.
