You can only use config.opts to specify module options for modules
that are managed by cardmgr.

If there is not already a device definition in the config files that
refers to the "airo" module, then the "airo" module is not being
managed by cardmgr.  Put your module options in /etc/modules.conf.

The semantics of the config file is explained in 'man pcmcia'.
