     The pcmcia subsystem provides machine-independent bus support and drivers
     for PCMCIA (PC Card) devices.


     The following devices are supported, sorted by function and driver name:

SCSI controllers

             Adaptec APA-14[56]0 and NewMedia BusToaster SCSI controller

IDE controllers

             Devices which implement an ATA/IDE interface, such as mini disk
             drives, CDROMs. This includes Compact Flash cards which emulate a
             disk drive.

     The supported PCMCIA controllers are those that are i82365 compatible.


     On some pcmcia adapters, for instance the sbus(4)-based stp(4), the
     pcmcia bus will be mapped in big-endian format instead of the natural
     (and preferred) little endian format. Unfortunately such controllers lack
     the hardware facility to swap bytes, and it is not efficient to convert
     all drivers to always know about this. While 8 bit drivers can invisibly
     work on such a bus, 16 bit drivers will need modification to handle this.
     So far, wi(4) is the only driver to require these modifications.

     If the pcmcia adapter is not detected, or if pcmcia events (such as card
     insertion) do not occur, there may be a PCI card BIOS mapped in the same
     memory space the pcmcia driver is configured to use (this is often the
     case with ethernet card boot ROMs). The output from dmesg(8) should con-
     tain a line beginning with "bios0" that lists the memory address and size
     of mapped regions. If there is a conflict, you can use boot_config(8) to
     change the iomem parameter of the pcic device to a non-overlapping ad-
     dress, such as 0xd8000 for pcic0. Some experimentation may be required to
     find a working value; in some cases the size parameter of the pcic device
     may need to be decreased to avoid a conflict.
