Hi Pavel,

thanks for info. I fixed this kernel freeze using pcmciautils only.
Now I have 1 major problem:

I have XI-325 card and also Orinoco card

so I need  both modules to be compiled, but want pcmciautils bind hostap_cs 
driver to xi-325 card, but currently it autobinds orinoco_cs module.

Any solution for this?
