Please be a bit more specific about what works here. Did you use the
Orinoco card with Host AP driver or orinoco_cs driver from the kernel
tree? Did you try using the SMC card with orinoco_cs driver? It looks
like hostap_cs and orinoco_cs are using more less identical operations
for requesting IRQs. You could also look whether 'dump_cis' shows any
differences in the cftable_entries between the cards that work and don't
