Possible 0.2.4 bug with Card Service Restarts

We noticed that when running hostap, with two different flavors of cards
in the system, ie Soekris 4511, and one pci driver, and one cs driver,
that when a person restarts the pcmcia card services, that we get
multiple wlan1 entries in the /proc/net/hostap structure.  Things work,
but the reference to wlan1 becomes ambiguous in the proc table.

By unloading the parent hostap driver, which in our case is OK, and
reloading hostap_pci & _cs, it corrects the issue and things are sane. 
Something to do with the card services stop is not clearing the wlan1
entry before adding the new one.
