Well, for those who use cardbus cards, cardbus resources aren't "nice to
have", they are absolutely required. Of course, not all cardbus cards need
as many resources as are currently assigned, so I wouldn't oppose a patch
which marks _some_ of the currently assigned resources as "nice to have".
But this approach -- 0 required, all "nice to have" -- seems wrong to me.
