not needed for the test, what seems to be not functionning is the
loading of i82365 module (in the errorlog, it indicates he found no
adaptator). Under a pismo there is no such problem.

I have built PCMCIA in the kernel, but the problem is that to load
orinico_cs, we must first load the PCMCIA support because it depends
on ds that depends on a working pcmcia adaptor driver (i82365 in
previous powerbooks).

The problem seems that i82365 seems not recognizing the cardbus on
titanium. lspci output is :

01:1a.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1211
         Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 16, IRQ 58
         Memory at 80080000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
         Bus: primary=01, secondary=02, subordinate=05, sec-latency=32
         I/O window 1: 00000000-00000003
         16-bit legacy interface ports at 1011

Yes, probably we need a separate orinoco_cs and airport driver,
perhaps depending both on the same implementation module (hermes
driver ?).
