stab - current PCMCIA socket status
The stab file is created by cardmgr and contains identification and
device driver information for PCMCIA cards. Each socket is described
by one header line, followed by one or more device driver lines. The
header gives the card name as given in /etc/pcmcia/config. Device
driver lines consist of a series of tab-separated fields. The first
field is the socket number. The second field is the device class,
which identifies which script in /etc/pcmcia is used to configure or
shut down this device. The third field is the driver name. The fourth
field is used to number devices when a single card has several devices
associated with the same driver. The fifth field is the device name,
and the final two fields are major and minor device numbers for this
device, if appropriate.
The file is updated by cardmgr whenever a card is inserted or ejected,
and when cardmgr receives a SIGHUP signal.
The stab file will normally be created in /var/lib/pcmcia, but if that
directory is unavailable, it will be found in /var/run.
