Description of problem:
Catched this message from the kernel when Xircom CEM56 pcmcia card
is removed without running cardctl eject before.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.4.18-10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert Xircom CEM56 (CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56) card
2. wait until all pcmcia/network initialization is complete
3. remove the card from the pcmcia slot.

Actual Results:  Kernel complains about a vfree(): sleeping in interrupt!!

Additional info:

The Xircom CEM56 uses the xirc2ps_cs driver.
I will upload the relevant kernel logs next.
