Description of problem:
kudzu does not enable PCMCIA support if a PCMCIA CardBus bridge is added to an
existing system. Simply had to edit /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia (PCMCIA=yes, select a
PCIC) and everything works fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux 8.0.
2. Install a CardBus bridge (mine is Texas Instruments PCI1410)
3. Reboot and find that the PCMCIA subsystem is never automatically enabled.

This is fixed in the Fedora Core development tree with pcmciautils and udev, as
pcmcia-cs is no longer needed.
