Usually, cardmgr (pcmcia-cs) uses /etc/pcmcia/config as a configuration.
This file sources in *.conf from the same directory and copying
hostap_cs.conf to that directory should be enough to configure cardmgr
to load the modules and initialize the card. This file is in driver/etc
directory of the Host AP distribution.
