Comment 4 Need Real Name 2003-01-29 19:38:04 UTC
With 2.4.20-2.27
Now no kernel dont freeze but module don't load
Jan 29 20:10:12 Maus kernel: Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
Jan 29 20:10:12 Maus kernel:   options:  [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
Jan 29 20:10:12 Maus kernel: PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device
02:04.0. Please try using pci=biosirq.
Jan 29 20:10:12 Maus kernel: PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin B of device
02:04.1. Please try using pci=biosirq.
Jan 29 20:10:12 Maus kernel: unloading Kernel Card Services

pci=biosirq does no matter

BUT  this kernel do not propper shut down it hangs after doing
when sending SIGTERM last message is
Sending all precesses the TERM signal ...

Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-03 15:06:33 UTC
reboot hang is a known (and now fixed) other, unrelated bug.
It looks like your bios doesn't provide the proper $PIR table for irq routing to
your cardbus controller..... not a lot we can do about that.

Comment 6 Need Real Name 2003-02-21 20:15:24 UTC
adding acpi patch acpi-20021205-2.4.20.diff  to 2.4.20-2.21 will solve the
IRQ routing problem.
This patch applies to the redhat kernel with only one reject in
arch/i386/kernel/io_apic.c failing insert #include <linux/acpi.h>

For toshiba laptops it is also advised to add patch
relaxed-aml.patch  from
