I tested removing the HAS_IOPORT dependency on PCCARD thus ungating
PCMCIA and CARDBUS. This then requires about 30 additional HAS_IOPORT
dependencies to build my s390 allyesconfig.

The only exceptions I found that depends on PCMCIA and isn't otherwise
dependend on ISA or a specific platform are USB_SL811_CS and
PCMCIA_RAYCS (Aviator/Raytheon 2.4GHz wireless).

As for CARDBUS the only "depends on CARDBUS" is in
drivers/net/ethernet/dec/tulip/Kconfig. Now I tested with allyesconfig
which also sets CONFIG_TULIP_MMIO and with that the drivers there did
compile. I guess one should then have "select TULIP_MMIO if
!HAS_IOPORT" in the config NET_TULIP.

So not sure, it seems unlikely we're going to see any new
PCMCIA/CardBus device drivers added and that's a lot of churn for
compile testing so few drivers but in theory it looks like it is
possible to have non-I/O port PCMCIA/CardBus.

Thanks,
Niklas
