None The card decodes 10 bits, the bridge decodes 16 bits

The card itself decodes 10 bits of address space.  The PCMCIA bridge
decodes all 16 bits, so the card will never see accesses to aliases
like 0x250-0x25f if the bridge was configured for 0xa50-0xa5f.

If your power management device is particularly goofy and only decodes
10 bits of address, then yes, you would need to also exclude all
aliases of 0x250-0x25f.

There is no interface for directly forcing the IO port range for a
card.  I decided to not provide such an option because it should never
be needed and I expected it to be generally misused.

I'm not sure if it is a good idea to assume that your kernel has SCSI
CD-ROM support built in.  At least, check your /lib/modules/*/scsi
directory to see if there is an sr_mod module.  If so, try loading
that before inserting your card.
