Thread-topic: pciback doesn't take CardBus device
I haven't test 2.6.18 yet; but will do. The issue I found is with the following 
configuration. These devices are behind the same bridge. But because 46:06.5 is 
a CardBus and can't be assigned, it blocks other devices from being assigned to 
a guest VM. I will create a patch for it. 


46:06.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Ricoh Co Ltd R5C832 IEEE 1394 Controller (rev 06)
46:06.1 SD Host controller: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host 
Adapter (rev 25)
46:06.2 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C843 MMC Host Controller (rev 14)
46:06.3 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter 
(rev 14)
46:06.4 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller (rev 14)
46:06.5 CardBus bridge: Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II (rev bb)

No reason at all.
Was this working in the past (2.6.18?). I will gladly accept any patch.
