testing PCMCIA setup under FC5, for Sierra Aircard555 CMDA modem



Hello,

I am very excited about the newer PCMCIA implementation in accord
with hotplug. I was trying to setup my Sierra Wireless Aircard
555 under FC5 test1 and hit the obvious bumps. Below is a URL
where I have documented some of my understanding for the newer
systems as it works:
my_blog_url_

Below a URL where Rahul S. has added to the Fedora Release notes
overview:
rahul_fc_wiki_url_

After patching (as on blog_url above) the serial_cs.c, I noticed
that this PCMCIA device reports different manufacture_id on FC4
and FC5, further I noticed the same is happening on FC5 box
before and after manual firmware loading as below in command
line snippet.

Before you look into the snippet below I will also like to point
out that confused about different manufacture_id reporting I
re-patched the serial_cs.c and below is what is being used for
the snippet bellow, here:
+PCMCIA_DEVICE_CIS_MANF_CARD(0x013f, 0xa555,
"SW_555_SER.cis"), /* Sierra Aircard 555 CDMA 1xrtt Modem */

Sorry, no modem was detected!  Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?

Found a modem on /dev/ttyS1.

the virsions if you want to know are:
2.6.14-prep (kernel-2.6.14-1.1783_FC5 - src)
pcmciautils-011-1
hotplug-2004_09_23-10

So finally this modem seems ready on expected ttyS1 and ready for
connection to be established, I'll also liek to have any
suggestions how this can be more fine tuned automatic further,
and some help for understating the manufacture_id issue.

Thanks,
