Bug Description

I use a Conceptronic PCMCIA-WLAN-Adapter with a Ralink RT61 chipset to connect to wireless networks.
The adapter uses the rt2x00pci driver (if I get it right) and works fairly well (see other bug reports).

But everytime I manually eject the adapter from its PCMCIA-socket, it causes the system to lock completely.
If I manually remove the rt2x00pci module, I can savely eject the card.

lspci-output:
06:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g

Workaround:

rmmod rt61pci
rmmod rt2x00pci
rmmod rt2x00lib

And you can savely eject the network adapter.
