I've missed a lot of this thread, so if this isn't applicable, ignore me.

As far as I know, that directory full of links has been there for some 
time in stock kernel packages.

For example:

[mfratoni@xxxxxx anaconda]$ ls -d /lib/modules/*/pcmcia
/lib/modules/2.4.18-19.7.x/pcmcia  
/lib/modules/2.4.18-27.7.x/pcmcia
/lib/modules/2.4.18-24.7.x/pcmcia

[mfratoni@xxxxxxx slinky]$ ls -d /lib/modules/*/pcmcia
/lib/modules/2.4.18-27.8.0/pcmcia
/lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/pcmcia

However, on a Shrike machine:
[mfratoni@xxxxxx SOURCES]$ rpm -q kernel
kernel-2.4.20-8
[mfratoni@xxxxxx SOURCES]$ ls -d /lib/modules/*/pcmcia
ls: /lib/modules/*/pcmcia: No such file or directory

Even on my laptop, which uses pcmcia:
[mfratoni@xxxxxxxxx mfratoni]$ ls -d /lib/modules/*/pcmcia
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/pcmcia
