Question Any advantage (possible) to disable 2nd PCMCIA host?

Compaq, in their finite wisdom, put only a single CardBus slot in my Presario 1260. So while the PCMCIA controller supports 2 slots only one can actually be used.

So, my questions is this: is it desireable, or even possible, to disable the second host on the PCMCIA controller?

The current (pcmcia-cs-3.1.7) is working fine with my 3Com 3C575 NIC. I'm thinking in terms of system resources saved, rather than fixing any specific problem.

My configuration:

 Intel PCIC probe:
   TI 1131 PCI-to-CardBus at bus 0 slot 10, mem 0x68000000, 2 sockets
     host opts [0]: [ring] [pci + serial irq] [no pci irq] [lat 168/176] [bus 32/34]
     host opts [1]: [ring] [pci + serial irq] [no pci irq] [lat 168/176] [bus 35/37]
     ISA irqs (scanned) = 3,4,7,9,12 polling interval = 1000 ms

Thank you.
