3.1.15 in single user mode.

as previously mentionned, I no longer have the pre-3.1.15
source tree :(

I've investigated a bit to understand why it is working in single
user mode and found that the problem occurs when ALSA drivers
are loaded before PCMCIA. I have a sound card that requires
the latest CVS ALSA source tree in order to work (a YAMAHA
YMF-744B card supported by the new ymfpci.o module).

BTW, I had no problem with PCMCIA pre-3.1.15 and ALSA
CVS-2000-05-31. It started to crash with PCMCIA 3.1.15
(or pre-3.1.16) and ALSA CVS-2000-06-02. I've upgraded ALSA
first and AFAIR it was still working..

I'll try to look more deeply into this later..

OTOH, I'm not able to pass packets through my Xircom card
until I enable the promiscuous-mode. With pre-3.1.15, 
a ifdown/ifup was usually enough.
