None I think the 2.3.* issue is different

I think the problem with tulip_cb in the 2.3.51 kernel tree is
different; the tulip_cb driver in the PCMCIA package does not have
this problem, because in my version of the driver, unregister_netdev
is not called in interrupt context.  Jeff Garzik, who is now
maintaining the tulip drivers in the 2.3 tree, plans to merge the
Cardbus-specific tulip stuff so that there will be just one tulip
driver.  Right now, the tulip_cb driver in the 2.3 tree is in a
temporarily funny state, because it has partially diverged from the
old tulip_cb driver, but the new merged tulip driver isn't ready yet.

The tulip_cb driver in the 2.3 tree uses the relatively new kernel
API's for hot swap PCI devices, which is really what cardbus cards
