This looks more like cardmgr configuration issue than a Host AP driver
specific problem. Please note that cardmgr events are reported in
syslog, not in kernel log, so dmesg will not include information about
the selected driver. Your dmesg output did not show any sign of Host AP
driver being loaded, so it looks like cardmgr was not configured to use
hostap_cs with this card.

Do you still have wlan-ng installed on that system? This card may be
configured in some other file in /etc/pcmcia to use that driver..
