Actually, we no longer pass any events to cardmgr for cardbus cards.

Since we treat cardbus cards as full class PCI citizens, we use the
hotplug subsystem to locate the required module via the PCI vendor
and device IDs.

I think you want to look into why /sbin/hotplug isn't finding the
correct module and loading it.  Maybe enabling DEBUG in /sbin/hotplug
would shed some further light on the problem?

Also I'd suggest adding "exec </dev/null >/dev/console 2>&1" on the
first blank line of /sbin/hotplug so if any errors occur during the
execution of the shell script, they actually get reported to
somewhere (console).  However, I'm willing to bet that this alone
may fix the problem.
