Subject: [gentoo-user] dwl G650+ causes a hard lockup on insertion

Anyone have a clue: I have a d-link dwl-G650+ pcmcia wireless card that
causes a hard crash whenever it is inserted into a dell i8200 laptop.  I
last emailed about this many months back, and a number of others had a
similar problem but no fixes.  I am hoping that by now someone will have
a fix or I might as well ebay the card and see if something else will

The error is:
CPU: Machine Check Exception: 000000000000004
Bank0: a200000084010400
Kernel Panic - not syncing: CPU context corrupt

If I dont install the pcmcia modules I can insert the card.
yenta_socket appears to be the culprit as the crash occurs when this
module loads.  On rare occasions, I can insert (and use) the card, but
the next time - crash!

This has happened since I bought the card just after I started using the
early 2.6 kernels, and is occurring with gentoo-sources-2.6.12-r6.

An old hermes card works fine, so I know there is no hardware problem.
