This file details changes in 2.6 which affect PCMCIA card driver authors:
+* New configuration loop helper (as of 2.6.28)
+ By calling pcmcia_loop_config(), a driver can iterate over all available
+ configuration options. During a driver's probe() phase, one doesn't need
+ to use pcmcia_get_{first,next}_tuple, pcmcia_get_tuple_data and
+ pcmcia_parse_tuple directly in most if not all cases.
* New release helper (as of 2.6.17)
Instead of calling pcmcia_release_{configuration,io,irq,win}, all that's
necessary now is calling pcmcia_disable_device. As there is no valid
