The GPSI interface driver does not re-enable the Card Event Interrupt, which
causes problems after a card event (for example: link-loss) comes in.  This
can lead, for example, to the card failing to re-associate.  This patch 
ensures that we re-enable the Card Event Interrupt when we handle card events.
