This is a wrong approach. It's good to know that hostap_cs can be
loaded, but cardmgr should load hostap_cs when it detects the card.
Without cardmgr, the driver won't use the card.

That's also wrong. This enables loading hostap_cs by "modprobe wlan0",
but if it's done without cardmgr, there will be no wlan0 device.

The next obvious step is to stop pcmcia and start again.

You didn't supply kernel logs that would indicate IRQ problems.
