VCC_mismatch: VCC_ignore NOT working!!Help

I had to do this to make my laptop work. My laptop has an older Cirrus Logic
Controller (PD6832) and that controller doesn't like the CIS from the Senao
card. I have several of the Senao 2511's and I had to add a line to
hostap_cs.conf. At the end of the file there is a commented line that has
options for the hostap_cs module. I didn't edit it. I just dropped one line
below it and added the line as follows:
module "hostap_cs" opts "ignore_cis_vcc=1"
It looks as though you still had that line commented out. Remove the "#"
from the beginning of the line. Let me know if this works!!!!!

>Does not mean that hostap_cs is loaded but there is an IRQ issue?
