PCMCIA support in new kernel?

I understand the Linux kernel will soon include native PCMCIA cardbus support. When I boot kernel 2.6.14, a message appears warning me about the upcoming change, and that I'll need to reconfigure to avoid conflicts.

Does anyone know exactly what must be done when that kernel is released? Uninstalling cardmgr, yenta_driver, more...? Or should the kernel's release notes contain that info?

Thanks for your advice. (My only Net access is through PCMCIA.)

It's a good idea to keep a backup copy of your /etc/pcmcia files for now.
