according to your log, 3.0.5 worked with irq 4 and io 0x140.

3.1.5 did not work, with irq 3 and io 0x1740.

3.0.14 did not work, with irq 5 and io 0x140.

It doesn't really matter what interrupts appear to be available.  Some
interrupts may not even be physically connected to your PCMCIA bridge. 
Also, if a device is "disabled", that doesn't necessarily mean that
its interrupt is available for use by another arbitrary device.

What I would do is to try to recreate the 3.0.5 situation.  Exclude
irq 3 in your config.opts file, but don't exclude irq 4.  And exclude
the 0x1000-0x17ff io port range.

Thanks, I was able to make it work.

I excluded the upper port range 0x1000-0x17ff, included irq4 and specified "irq_list=4,5,12" and the card worked after a reboot. (Was a reboot really necessary?
Now the log is the same as the old pcmcia-3.0.5 log. Thanks a lot!
