None Not enough free interrupts, apparently

You have an interrupt starvation problem.  The PCMCIA-HOWTO has some
information about this situation.  When the i82365 module loads, it
reports what interrupts appear to be available for PCMCIA devices.  It
must have decided that irq 11 is not usable: maybe it is committed for
PCI.

To say more, I'd want to see the PCIC probe messages from the i82365
driver.  You should probably bag the cs_irq setting and instead maybe
force polling for card insertions, with "poll_interval=100".  That may
free up another interrupt.

The latest PCMCIA release may also do a better job of configuring
interrupts, than the drivers included in RH6.1.
