Before you go shopping, make sure you are not using PCMCIA support in the kernel (it's very incomplete), get the latest version of pcmcia-cs, compile it against the kernel without PCMCIA support, and make sure that the i82365 module actually gets the "irq_mode=0" parameter.
i82365 from pcmcia-cs supports all bridges I could test - Texas Instruments, Ricoh and ToPIC97, both on desktop systems and laptops. The only problem is the you have to supply irq_mode=0 for PCI bridges and irq_mode=1 for laptops - the autoprobing still doesn't work correctly. But the same applies to other bridges.
