Description Need Real Name 2002-11-14 16:27:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0; Agilent 
Technologies IE5.5 SP2)

Description of problem:
I updated to the 2.4.18-17.7.x kernel and now when I do a cardctl eject the 
machine hangs.  If I physically eject the card it is fine.
This previously worked with no problems on 2.4.18-10.
The log entrys just before crash are :

cardmgr[565]: executing: './network check eth0'
cardmgr[565]: shutting down socket 1
cardmgr[565]: executing: './network stop eth0'
cardmgr[565]: executing: 'modprobe -r xirc2ps_cs'
syslogd 1.4.1 restart.

one other thing is that as far as I can tell 
./network check eth0

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: "cardctl eject" with a pcmcia ethernet card that uses the xir2ps_cs module

Actual Results:  Machine hangs ... no response to mouse or keyboardThe pcmcia 
card should have been powered down and the ethernet interface shut down

Additional info:

Just tried putting it into suspend mode, which powers down the pcmcia cards ... ie it does a cardctl 
eject.  But this appears to work ok

Scrub that last comment I'd booted using the wrong kernel
