Do you know of any systems other than the Amiga that are still
in use with new kernels and that rely on PCMCIA networking?

I know that Amiga has its own simple CONFIG_AMIGA_PCMCIA
implementation that is incompatible with CONFIG_PCMCIA device
drivers, so it is not affected by this.

For the few ARM systems that still support a CF card slot,
these tend to be used for IDE type storage cards because their
internal flash is too limited otherwise.
