nope.  it's actually in one of the configuration files in /etc/pcmcia/*.
	grep -l prism2_cs /etc/pcmcia/*
will give you a list of files with the wrong setting.  prism2_cs is what
the module was called about a year ago.  modifying the offending config
files to hostap_cs should cardmgr loading the right driver.  

the erroneous entries could either be from a previously installed old 
version of hostap, or some wacky suse default.
