---------------------------
-What: PCMCIA control ioctl (needed for pcmcia-cs [cardmgr, cardctl])
-When: 2.6.35/2.6.36
-Files: drivers/pcmcia/: pcmcia_ioctl.c
-Why: With the 16-bit PCMCIA subsystem now behaving (almost) like a
- normal hotpluggable bus, and with it using the default kernel
- infrastructure (hotplug, driver core, sysfs) keeping the PCMCIA
- control ioctl needed by cardmgr and cardctl from pcmcia-cs is
- unnecessary and potentially harmful (it does not provide for
- proper locking), and makes further cleanups and integration of the
- PCMCIA subsystem into the Linux kernel device driver model more
- difficult. The features provided by cardmgr and cardctl are either
- handled by the kernel itself now or are available in the new
- pcmciautils package available at
- http://kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/pcmcia/
-
- For all architectures except ARM, the associated config symbol
- has been removed from kernel 2.6.34; for ARM, it will be likely
- be removed from kernel 2.6.35. The actual code will then likely
- be removed from kernel 2.6.36.
