FC6 and hostap_cs

Just updating to FC6. Card seems to work but the new pcmcia system says 
that "pcmcia: the driver needs updating to supported shared IRQ lines."

It comes from pcmcia_resource.c:

  /* Make sure the fact the request type was overridden is passed back */
         if (type == IRQF_SHARED && !(req->Attributes & 
IRQ_TYPE_DYNAMIC_SHARING)) {
                 req->Attributes |= IRQ_TYPE_DYNAMIC_SHARING;
                 printk(KERN_WARNING "pcmcia: request for exclusive IRQ 
could not be fulfilled.\n");
                 printk(KERN_WARNING "pcmcia: the driver needs updating 
to supported shared IRQ lines.\n");
         }

Can this cause problems in some configurations?
Kernel is kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.
