It may be that the message is harmless.

What is the IRQ assignment a few seconds after inserting the card?

The CardBus code
   enables the device,
   loads the driver,
   assigns IRQs,
   then calls the driver's probe routine.

You might notice the ordering problem with the above step, considering
that my drivers scan for all supported devices when they load.
