I broke it with the io.h clean-up. It seems PCMCIA drivers rely on
__io() just being a cast. The easy fix is just restore that behavior for

diff --git a/arch/arm/include/asm/io.h b/arch/arm/include/asm/io.h

Can you please test this change. This is what we'll have to do for 3.4,
but this is not really the right solution. io_base should not be a
virtual address here, but an i/o address in the range of 0-64K. We need
to move PCMCIA to the fixed i/o mapping I've posted:

I've been trying to get PCMCIA to work on spitz in QEMU to test out
fixes, but haven't had much luck. I'm not getting a card detected even
though QEMU thinks one is present.
