Patch for current Linux kernel - pcmcia events

I'm posting this patch to help those trying to keep up with the Linux
kernel.  The event function in PCMCIA drivers should be moved from
client_reg to pcmcia_driver.

I don't think it should be applied to CVS yet.  PCMCIA is under heavy
development, and further API changes are expected.  From the Linux git
log (commit 1e212f3645a6b355de8c43a23376bc0e2ac49a63):

[PATCH] pcmcia: move event handler
Move the "event handler" to struct pcmcia_driver -- the unified event
handler will disappear really soon, but switching it to struct
pcmcia_driver in the meantime allows for better "step-by-step" patches.

So let's wait until 2.6.13 before we put more ifdefs into the hostap
code.  In the meantime, use this patch:
