-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.

This file details changes in 2.6 which affect PCMCIA card driver authors:
+* pcmcia_request_io changes (as of 2.6.36)
+ Instead of io_req_t, drivers are now requested to fill out
+ struct pcmcia_device *p_dev->resource[0,1] for up to two ioport
+ ranges. After a call to pcmcia_request_io(), the ports found there
+ are reserved, after calling pcmcia_request_configuration(), they may
+ be used.
+* No dev_info_t, no cs_types.h (as of 2.6.36)
+ dev_info_t and a few other typedefs are removed. No longer use them
+ in PCMCIA device drivers. Also, do not include pcmcia/cs_types.h, as
+ this file is gone.
* No dev_node_t (as of 2.6.35)
There is no more need to fill out a "dev_node_t" structure.
