PCMCIA: Statically linked CF card driver?

From: kus Kusche Klaus
Date: Thu Jun 23 2005 - 03:39:36 EST

* Embedded system, ARM platform, sa1100 processor
* Current Linux standard (or RT) kernel (2.6.12-something)
* Statically linked kernel, no module infrastructure and no initrd at
* Static /dev, no udev or devfs
* "hotplug" or card services not wanted
* sa1100 PCMCIA interface, PC Card / CF adapter
(e.g. Kingston Model No. CF/ADP)
(possibly other PC cards like WLAN, too,
but a CF adapter is the only PC card
we really should officially support)

* Any chance to get the CF card working in that environment?
* Any chance to boot from it?

Wishes and non-wishes:
* It would be nice to be able to replace the CF
without rebooting.
* It can be assumed that the PC card CF adapter
is present during boot.
* There is no need to support hotplugging of the PC card CF adapter.
(i.e. the PC card CF adapter could be treated as a static,
builtin device, with its driver linked into the kernel).

Many thanks in advance for any help!
