Any MPC8xx PCMCIA experts out there?

I have a problem I was hoping someone can help me out with.

My hardware is very similar to the MPC885ADS (DUET) board.

I have the PCMCIA interface working fine in Linux 2.4.26

I have recently enabled the PCMCIA support in u-boot. It also
seems to be working just fine.

My problem is, that once I enabled PCMCIA in u-boot, when Linux
comes up, my hardware hangs in the Linux PCMCIA initialization
code.

I have traced the hang down to an instruction in _fpqpcmcia_reset()
which is in the file .....kernel/drivers/pcmcia/pqpcmcia.c

The following code snipet shows where the hang occurs:

/* reset the mem/io windows */
/*
01 mem_win slot_A
...
0N mem-win slot_A
01 io-win slot_A
...
0N io-win slot_A
01 mem-win slot_B
...
0N mem-win slot_B
01 io-win slot_B
...
0N io-win slot_B
*/
for ( i = p_ctx->first_mem_win; i < (p_ctx->first_mem_win +
p_ctx->mem_wins_num); i++ )
{
p_ctx->REGS->win[i].pbr = 0; /******************* HANGS HERE
**********/
p_ctx->REGS->win[i].por = 0;
}
for ( i = p_ctx->first_io_win; i < (p_ctx->first_io_win +
p_ctx->io_wins_num); i++ )
{
p_ctx->REGS->win[i].pbr = 0;
p_ctx->REGS->win[i].por = 0;
}

I've tried doing a reset of the PCMCIA (*p_ctx->pgcr =
Q_PCMCIA_PGCRX_CXRESET
in various places before this Linux initialization takes place, but it
just causes kernel crashes. I've also tried doing the reset earlier
on. I'm kind of stumped on this one.

I was hoping to fix this problem without becoming a ppc PCMCIA guru.
I am using the MPC870. Does this ring a bell with anyone here?
