I'm having a similar problem, that is the Cirrus Logic Bridge is not working.
Simple explanation to this - it's not supported in the kernel PCMCIA Drivers.

Not sure on where to go from here, still trying to follow the instructions through. It looks like it's possible if you compile the external pcmcia-cs drivers and deactivate the ones in the kernel. However this requires source for the kernel and pcmcia-cs which I can see could be a problem, with no network connection ;-(
So - not really much help, but may stop you banging your head against it too much
