devfs and the PCMCIA utilities appear to dislike one another as well. I
was getting a hard machine lockup when I inserted a CF card on my Dell
laptop (2.4.1-XFS). Tried all sorts of things and then disabled DevFS
(now that device nodes work I could do that!:-) and the Card Services
now works and I can read my CF cards with out instant death.
