FWIW, mine's been broken off and on throughout the 2.4.x series.
Sometimes the driver has refused to load, do to resource prbolems.
Sometimes the machine will crash, probably, because interrupts are not
being handled correctly during DE device probe.  I don't think I've
ever had a kernel that slept properly with a CF card.  I'm currently
using 2.4.20-pre9-ben0 from October 14 (kernel compiled 00:03:50 Oct 15),
which seems to work as long as I don't put my TiPB to sleep with the
CF card in.
