I have the exact same problem as Ronny but with my
ThinkPad i1460. It works with 3.1.8 but freezes while
(or after) scanning IRQ's in 3.1.9 and 3.1.10.
This is during insmod of i82365.o
With 3.1.8 it detects a O2Micro OZ6812 PCI-to-CardBus at slot 19 and with 3.1.10 it detects the same thing at slot 00:13. and after the IRQ (defaults) the machine freezes.
