Hello there,

Yes, the power controller code is board specific. I don't remember much of
it today, but I don't think I've used a power controller like that.
The pcmcia related registers like pbr0 are setup by the m8xx_setup.c-code
dynamically, so there should be no need to mess with registers like that.
Please note that the pcmcia hardware in the m8xx series is kind of limited
if you use it with two slots, see the source code for more info.

Hope this helps!
