PCMCIA .cis files

    I've just tested that it is possible to load some specific PCMCIA socket
    driver on a machine that doesn't have any PCMCIA interfaces, but I don't
    think I can even build the ancient 2.4-ish pcmcia module with a current
    kernel, let alone run it :-(

So it sounds like you are saying that the current 2.6.12 pcmcia module
does use these files sometimes (for devices that give erroneous info),
but doesn't support the conversion binary to text at all.

Is that correct?
