Ok did you put the system to sleep or reboot it?

I am trying to figure out myself where the card is. The olpc's lspci
do not show where it is ( though they also do not really identify most
fo the devices beyond VIA device... need to figure out to make that
better).

However I did see that lshal shows some stuff its still there
physically. On my system (unknown 1.5 .. need to figure out how to get
what version it is) it is under

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/mmc_host/mmc2/mmc2:0001/mmc2:0001:1/net/

I would do a 'find /sys/devices/pci*/ | grep mmc_host' to see whats
being seen there.. Hope this helps somewhat.
