PCMCIA on a Pismo with pcmcia-cs-3.1.24

I'm trying to get PCMCIA working on my Mac Powerbook Pismo, with kernel
2.2.18pre4-ben1 and pcmcia-cs-3.1.24 (no patches applied--as far as I can
tell, none should be necessary...).  I'm primarily trying to get a
WaveLAN card to work.

I've carefully read the notes at:


and followed what seemed currently relevant.

The problem seems to be that the i82365 driver cannot properly allocate
the interrupt assigned to the device.  The problem I'm having seems to be
identical to one that Uwe Steinmann reported a few weeks ago on this
mailing list.  I've read the followups to that email, but did not find any

The relevant portions of my kernel log, /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, and lspci
are attached below.

Any hints or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
