News PCMCIA driver release 2.9.4

Boy, that was quick...

This release should fix the PCI controller probe in the i82365 module (which I broke in 2.9.3). Also, I've rewritten (again!) the transceiver autodetection code in the 3c589 driver. The new autodetect code will only be active if you do not explicitly select the transceiver type. And it should work a bit better than it did in 2.9.3. My only excuse is that it is really tricky to debug this when your "network" consists of one laptop, two adapter cards, and a 10baseT hub.

Other minor changes include some updates for 2.1.31 and later kernels. Actually, the package will now refuse to compile under 2.1.31 through 2.1.33, due to some kernel problems that didn't seem worth the trouble of finding workarounds. If you want to be on the cutting edge, go straight to 2.1.34.
