New TiPB - PCMCIA settings

After fighting for a short while, I have some settings for config.opts on
the new Ti PowerBook. These make PCMCIA work for me anyways:
include memory 0xa0003000-0xa0ffffff
include port 0x9100-0x9fff
Remove any other include memory/port lines to avoid oopses.
It would really be nice if yenta_socket could be cleaned up and this stuff
could be autodetected. the algorithm was straightforward I think:
>From /proc/iomem, find the card services region and use a suitable sized
region starting after that (assuming it is free).
>From /proc/ioports, find the PCI entry for cardbus and use the ports available
directly after the last cardbus slot for a suitable sized region.
What doesn't work right now:
- dmasound is aweful (lots of clicking and sounds bad)
- video issues in XFree86 and fbdev, along with sleeping
- closing the screen causes lots of garbling on the screen.
- v.92 modem (hcfusb doesn't work on it)
