None Unfortunately there is no easy fix; the API is broken

This is a "feature" of the new hot plug API.  There is no workaround
at this time, because there is no mechanism in the new API to pass the
correct device name to cardmgr.

Hmm, so does that mean that unless things change drastically one way or the other, laptop users with PCMCIA cards will not be able to migrate to 2.4 when it is released?

This reasoning sounds remarkably similar to the bad feelings surrounding the network driver changes in the late 2.3 kernels and the Donald Becker crafted generic network drivers (like the eepro100 for instance).

I hope this does not degenerate into a similar situation.

Isn't there some sort of compromise that could be reached?
