(www.gumstix.com). It's running kernel 2.6.17, with the kernel hostap

I have just solved a problem that I had on a laptop which had some
similar mistakes that you described for your gumstix.
Indeed there were orinoco and hostap which were loaded at the same time
though pccardctl showed only hostap_cs driver.
try : lsmod | grep pcmcia
in order to see if it's the same for you.
In this case comment every line in the /etc/pcmcia/config file which
matches your card. On each line found in the file above you should see
that your card is bound to orinoco driver.
Don't forget to do : kill -SIGHUP pid_of_cardmgr
after having modified /etc/pcmcia/config
I hope that helps you.
