I did try pci=assign-busses before unapplying the patch, which didn't
help anything.

Did you try the "pci=assign-busses" option before you reverted that patch? Is
your system running a 32- or 64-bit system?

This breakage needs to be sent to linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx As you have seen
from the short log accompanying that patch, it was signed-off-by Andrew Morton
and Linus Torvalds - you cannot get any higher than that.

I have some personal interest in this problem as the patch in question fixed a
problem that kept my machine from booting with any cardbus card in the adapter.
