@@ -56,3 +56,12 @@ This file details changes in 2.6 which affect PCMCIA card driver authors:
memory regions in-use. The name argument should be a pointer to
your driver name. Eg, for pcnet_cs, name should point to the
string "pcnet_cs".
+* CardServices is gone
+ CardServices() in 2.4 is just a big switch statement to call various
+ services. In 2.6, all of those entry points are exported and called
+ directly (except for pcmcia_report_error(), just use cs_error() instead).
+* struct pcmcia_driver
+ You need to use struct pcmcia_driver and pcmcia_{un,}register_driver
+ instead of {un,}register_pccard_driver
