The pcmcia spec allows for up to 5 seconds of initialization time,
and the ready pin in the pcmcia port should tell when the cam is ready.

What if you do something like in the budget-av driver:

int timeout = x
while (--timeout > 0 && !dst_wait_ready())
	msleep(y);

Does that work, or will it still barf?
