Warning Toshiba Tecra 8100, 3.1.10 works, 3.1.11 fails

I spent some hours last night getting pcmcia working
with redhat 6.1 kernel-2.2.12 on a Toshiba Tecra 8100.

Note first that SuSE 6.3 runs out of the box on this machine:

Feb  2 22:18:49 elf8 kernel: Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.3
Feb  2 22:18:49 elf8 kernel:   kernel build: 2.2.13 #1 Mon Nov 8 18:28:35 GMT 1999
Feb  2 22:18:49 elf8 kernel:   options:  [pci] [cardbus] [pnp]

But the pcmcia shipping with RedHat 6.1 didn't work.

I first tried pcmcia-cs-3.1.11, in all configurations tried,
with all sorts of imaginative values for cb_mem_base, the
result was essentially:

I then tried pcmcia-cs-3.1.10, and immediately succeeded:

I haven't yet gotten the network up under RedHat, getting
the services started at all was enough for last night.

I needed a "tired face" for this message, I got four hours
of sleep last night.
