The Intel i82365SL PC Card Interface Controller provides one or more PCMCIA PC Card sockets. The pcic driver implements a PCMCIA bus nexus driver.
The driver provides basic support for the Intel 82365SL and compatible chips. The chips that have been tested are:
Cirrus Logic PD6710/PD6720/PD6722
Toshiba PCIC and ToPIC
Texas Instruments PCI1130/PCI1131/PCI1031
While most systems using one of these chips should work, there are enough options left to the hardware designer that are not software detectable that some systems will not be supported. Note that systems with CardBus interfaces are only supported in the non-legacy mode. Systems that only initialize the bridge to legacy mode and don't configure the PCI memory will not be supported.
Direct access to the PCMCIA hardware is not supported. All device access must be through the Card Services interface of the DDI.
