None PCMCIA on PowerPC is problematic

PCMCIA setup on PowerBooks is sketchy, because I can't test it and get
very little feedback from users.

Only a subset of PCMCIA drivers have had any testing on PowerPC
systems.  The supported-cards list shows which drivers are reported to
work on PowerPC; I have not heard that the Wavelan driver works.  It
may be ok, or it may have big-endian/little-endian issues that need to
be sorted out.

/etc/pcmcia/config.opts also needs to be configured specially.  I
would try changing the default memory and IO port windows to something

    include memory 0x80000000-0x80ffffff
    include port 0x100-0x1ff

(remove the 0xc0000-0xfffff memory window, and the other IO port
windows), and see if that works any better, at least for the modem
