I'm having problems with an IBM PCMCIA card. When it is removed the kernel
panics with:

tr0: PCMCIA card removed.
Kernel Panic: task[0] trying to sleep.
In swapper task - not syncing

Kernel versions 2.0.29 and 2.0.30-2

ipex cardmgr[71]: initializing socket 1
ipex cardmgr[71]: socket 1: IBM Token Ring Adapter
ipex cardmgr[71]: executing: '/sbin/insmod /lib/modules/2.0.30/pcmcia/ibmtr_cs.o'
ipex kernel: tr0: port 0xa20, irq 9, mmio 0xd2000, sram 0xd4000,
ipex kernel: hwaddr=08005A5B90E2
ipex cardmgr[71]: executing: '/etc/pcmcia/network start tr0'

ipex kernel: tr0: Initial interrupt : shared RAM located at 000D42D4.

I'm not sure where to go next so.....

Best regards.
