Sad Problems with 3.1.15 + wavelan2_cs driver 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues

Today I upgraded my TP600X to kernel 2.2.16 and while I was at it, I also upgraded från pcmcia-cs 3.1.14 to 3.1.15. Since I'm using a WaveLAN (Silver 11Mbps), I also added the wavelan2_cs driver, like I had in 3.1.14.

When I inserted the WaveLAN card, cardctl promptly died, and checking the logs, this is what I found:

 Jun  8 13:23:17 foobar cardmgr[427]: initializing socket 0

 Jun  8 13:23:17 foobar kernel: wvlan_cs: (c) Andreas Neuhaus <andy@fasta.fh-dortmund.de> 

It seems it tried to load two different drivers. I then configured, compiled and installed from the 3.1.14 sources, and 3.1.14 + wavelan2_cs works fine under 2.2.16. Something must have been introduced in 3.1.15 that either breaks with wavelan2_cs, or with kernel 2.2.16.
