Question when is the *_attach invoked 

Forum: PCMCIA driver development

  I am heading to develope a device driver for PCMCIA based data acquisition card. I compiled "dummy_cs" as module and loaded using "insmod". I view the log messages, it appeared that only init_module() function a invoked. but the *_attach() function was not invoked.
  My question are:
  1. I know the dev_info is a key string, but what string I should use? arbitrary?
  2. when is the *_attach function invoked, so driver instance could be created. 

  Can anybody tell me the procedure of these function being called and the caller.
  Thank you in advance!
