[PATCH] pcmcia: deprecate ioctl
Schedule removal of the PCMCIA ioctl (and thus kernel support for the pcmcia-cs userspace package) for November 2005. A big "thank you" to Dave Hinds for his great work on supporting PCMCIA in Linux. Things are just done differently by now, so the ongoing work to make PCMCIA behave like any other hotpluggable bus should continue.
