I've just posted a patch.  It's really short, so I'll post it again,

The problem is caused by the recent cleanup in the toplevel Makefile.
Now it compiles the modules by calling the kernel makefile with changed
SUBDIR, the same way as it's done for 2.5 kernels.  The bad thing is that
the additional includes are not passed to the compiler in this case.  The
kernel has its own idea what includes to use.

Since pcmcia-cs includes must go before kernel includes, adding them
to CC is pretty much the only way to fix the problem.  The build system
doesn't allow changing CFLAGS or CPPFLAGS.  All other flags go to the end
of the command line.
