Question How to handle a CardBus card without manfid?

I currently try to hack a driver for a IEEE1394/FireWire CardBus Card by Newer Technology. The card is based upon the TI PCI-Lynx chipset, and a "normal" driver is available from the ieee1394 project, which I try to use.

Unfortunately, the card is not recognised at all upon insertion. I hacked around in the cardmgr sources and added some debug info to find the cause. The problem seems to be that at the beginning of lookup_card within cardmgr.c the ioctl() call returns 0, but has_cis is also 0. The check for a funcid.func does also not work as its value is 0xff.

Maybe I should add that the card was designed for a Mac. I can see it using lspci, but all io and memory resources are disabled ("Control: I/O- Mem- BusMaster- etc.). Might this be the cause of the problem? Any other idea how I could it get being recognised?

Thanks for your help, Albrecht.
