Sad 2.4.0 test 7 broke pcnet_cs

I decided to give the latest test kernel a shot since PCMCIA is supposed to be a bit handier now that it's in the real tree. Looks like they missed something in the Great ReOrg though. And the amazing thing is, they only missed the most commonly used module for me :( pcnet_cs doesn't work because it's missing these symbols:

This was on a pentium 233 MMX. Haven't had a chance to try it compiled for other CPUs. Card services are version 3.1.19.

Thanks ... looking forward to using a new kernel one of these days.
