It is a PCMCIA NIC ?

I found some of these messages on a Compaq Presario 1200 running with a DE-660 PCMCIA card.
I was talking with Federico and we tracked this down to some IRQ assigment problem, the machine at all doesn't look to have IRQ conflict problem. The card and machine configuration works perfectly on Windows and Linux.
I've tracked it until pcmcia_intr_establish() but I don't have much time to continue this debugging.
If someone have any information about this issue I would like to know and can be very useful, thanks.
