1. The driver is not built unless you figure out to enable it under PCI
where normal users will definitely _not_ look for PC-Card drivers.
2. cardmgr has no idea it needs to look for tulip.o in misc/ instead of
tulip_cb.o in pcmcia/: it complains about unknown card in slot 0.
3. modprobing the tulip driver manually correctly recognizes my Xircom
RBEM56G-100 but i see no link and no error output.
4. Trying to force the different variants of the 10BaseT medium (w/ and
w/o MII) makes no difference, but at least gets a reaction from the
card: it's complaining about too many tries in a function called
<something>_CSR6 (i am quoting from memory here since the laptop is
in the office and i am not)
5. The IRQ allocation is identical between 2.3.36 and 2.3.52-2.
The I/O allocation is different as far as i can tell: 2.3.36 appears
to only allocate 0x200-0x287, while 2.3.52-2 tries to allocate io space
above 0x1000 as well.
a) configuration of the source is broken.
b) the handling of tulip based cards by cardmgr (v3.1.11) is broken
c) the driver is broken (i guess "no link, no matter what you do" qualifies
d) irq allocation appears to be in order, there are difficulties with the
resource allocation of the card (wrt the secondary modem/isdn function)
which i already made Linus aware of.
What else do you want to know?
