Would you keep any PCMCIA pattern?

F: Documentation/pcmcia/
F: include/pcmcia/
F: drivers/pcmcia/cs*
F: drivers/pcmcia/pcmcia*
F: drivers/pcmcia/rsrc*

This should cover the core utilities and leave
drivers that use pcmcia services out.

File patterns for these sections are setup as you suggested.

I didn't have a pattern for that section, thanks.

Also, file patterns are not exclusive.
A pattern may exist in more than 1 section.
A pattern with a trailing / includes all subdirectories.

cheers, Joe
