       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.
