I believe you are correct but I seem to remember that it will only be
posible via early userspace due to the database lookup cardmgr has to

I just did a test with my adapter.  I compiled bot the bridge driver
and the ide-cs into my 2.6.10 kernel, moved cardmgr to cardmgr.norun
and re-booted.  The bridge was found but the ide-cs device was not. 
Running /sbin/cardmgr.norun by hand enabled the ide-cs like normal. 
So looks to me like its still dependent on cardmgr.
