Have you tried any cards at all?
PCMCIA driver development
Problems with TI PCI1031 PCMCIA-Controller (Armand Portmann)
It is really unsupported (David Hinds)
No other cards tested (Armand Portmann)

You haven't tried "any other cards"? Other than what? (To be clear,
I meant other PCMCIA cards, not other card readers)
I still would want to see kernel messages and hear how this PCI1031
controller behaves. The PCMCIA drivers should function OK treating
this as an unknown bridge: that just means the drivers will not use
any vendor-specific extensions.
