hostap obj files compiled with kernel 2.6.3.-25

It seems that the cardmgr loads the *.ko files that are in 
/lib/modules/2.6.3-25/kernel/3rdparty/hostap regardless of the obj files 
contained in  /lib/modules/2.6.3-25/kernel/drivers/net/wireless.
Probably it should be added in the Makefile to copy the obj files to the 
first dir if present, otherwise the cardmgr will use the old modules 
compiled with the kernel all the time.
