None Not enough hints already? 

Forum: PCMCIA driver development
Re: Question please give me some hints on writing pcmcia drivers (Shao Zhang)

If you have no device driver experience, you should probably start by
buying a book about the linux kernel (like "Linux Device Drivers" for
example).  The Linux PCMCIA Programmer's Guide is a fairly complete
description of everything that is unique to PCMCIA drivers.  And the
"dummy_cs" driver included in the Linux PCMCIA package shows how to
use all the PCMCIA specific stuff in a real driver.  And you also have
all sorts of examples of PCMCIA drivers to look at, and even a driver
for a very similar card...

rtlinux is certainly not necessary for all PCMCIA cards.  Presumably
it was used for the data acquisition card because this driver needed
to be very timing sensitive.  You could contact that driver author for
more information or advice.
