I will gather that tomorrow morning.  The odd thing is that sometimes it
works, sometimes it does not.  But more often than not it works first time
through but not second time.  Re-ipl and it works, try to restart cardmgr
and it does not.  Maybe when the module gets unloaded it only frees one
of the two interrupts.

Restarting the driver is not something I will normally be doing.  However
wy only worry is that shortly I am going to be working with a system
with 4 cards in it.
