Cardbus PCI expansion problems


Hello,

I am having problems running an expansion chassis on my laptop. This expansion chassis routes through the cardbus and offers 2 pci slots. I have a communication card in there that I have the driver for. I load the driver module manually at runtime for that card. When I try and read from the memory mapped registers on the communications card, all I get is 0xFFFFFFFF. I used a PCI analyzer to determine that while the configuration registers can be read/written properly, the memory accesses are not making it to the expansion chassis. I have tried booting with pci=assign-busses and acpi=off with no success. I am using a Dell 610 laptop under CentOS 4.3 (2.6.9-34). The card I am using can use either IO registers or memory mapped registers. I do not want to use the IO registers and it works fine without them. The output below indicates I am having problems with IO regions but this does not concern me since I do not need them.

Relavent output of dmesg:

Region 3: I/O ports at 5000 [size=fffffd00]

When I load the communications driver I added some printk's:
PCI: Enabling device 0000:09:04.0 (0000 -> 0003)
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:09:04.0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
Memory 31000100
Remap f0820100
Memory 31000000
Remap f0908000
Readl ffffffff
Read ffffffff

Notice that the Memory regions are okay. The call to ioremap in the driver output is indicated with Remap. The Readl and Read are readl and direct pointer reads to the memory. Writing to the registers also does not reach the cards. This driver works fine on normal PCI systems without the expansion.

The output of cardctl info is "" for all PRODIDs and the MANFID is 0000,0000 with a FUNCID=255. The output of cardctl ident is no product info available. The output of cardctl status is:
Socket 0:
no card
Socket 1:
3.3V CardBus card
function 0: [ready]

Any help would be much appreciated.
