Take a look in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf. There should be a kernel configuation file called OLDCARDBUS, or something to that effect. It's my understanding that this configuration file uses the old (FreeBSD 4*) system for dealing with pcmcia cards. Using the old cardbus configuration file didn't fix anything on a Compaq Presario 910US. The pccard slot configuration needed manual tweaking in FreeBSD 4.*; but it didn't work under either cardbus system when running FreeBSD 5*.
