I found this to be a problem as well. I simply did a modprobe yenta (or 
whichever the module name for yenta is) and then restarted the PCMCIA 
service - my stuff started working.

It seems that the pcmcia-cs update and/or the newer kernel we probably 
pulled from apt/yum/up2date last night broke it.
