Then why doesn't pcmcia_core appear in the output of lsmod?  Is PCMCIA
support enabled in the kernel?  Then you don't need to use PCMCIA_PATH.

I don't understand that.  Linux 2.4.20 uses Wireless Extensions 14.  But
the event 0x8C03 (IWEVREGISTERED) appeared in version 15.  Either you
patched the kernel or the output of "iwconfig --version" is incorrect.

Most likely you are doing something wrong.  For example, you could have
patched the kernel for WE 15 after you compiled it but before you compiled
hostap.  Or you have different kernel trees.  Or something like that.
