No, I mean that I have NEWCARD changes as well, that usually never get 
touched.  And it is sometimes easy to get things confused.

So we're down to stale sources at one of the mirrors, I think.  My
kernel tree here is completely clean and checked out from the my local 
cvs tree.  Where do you get your sources from?  What revision of
src/sys/dev/pccard/card_if.m do you have?  The following changed fixes 

revision 1.7
date: 2000/08/11 15:51:51;  author: imp;  state: Exp;  lines: +8 -1
Define get_memory_offset method

Which is Friday Morning MST (the time is GMT).  Plenty of time for the 
mirrors to be updated.

That is the case here.  Believe me.  But sitting around pointing
fingers after the problem has been fixed is usually not done.

That's a compelling reason.
