memory_cb - CardBus memory driver
gives direct memory access to the address spaces of CardBus cards.
It provides character-mode devices for accessing a card's PCI
configuration space, up to six mapped memory or IO regions, and its
expansion ROM space.
will allocate a free major device number. For each card, it will
report which address spaces are available, and their sizes. Minor
numbers have the form 'dddddsss', where 'ddddd' is the instance number
and 'sss' is the memory space for that instance.

The default memory card initialization script creates device special
files for all eight card address spaces, though for a particular card,
some of these may be unavailable. These devices have the

The character special devices can be used to read and write arbitrary
