OK, I think I found a driver bug now (minor, but still...)
I do not know what the aboive mdebus call fully does but it causes the
card to be "ejected", which is in general fine.

But the eth0 interface still remains to exist, which causes all kinds of
nasty things to happen, e.g.

root at om-gta02:/sys# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

usb0      no wireless extensions.

Segmentation fault

Which is pretty clear since iwconfig tries to query a non existent
device. ifconfig eth0 also still shows the (non existent) interface.
