[PATCH] PCMCIA entry for more Intersil cards

Hello!

hostap.conf doesn't have an entry for "I-Gate 11M PC Card".  See e.g. 
http://opensimpad.org/opensimpad-forum/viewtopic.php?p=1805&sid=19328295686b1ace23f786cdc2ee7f54
(in German)

The card has "manfid 0x0156, 0x0002", which was also used in Lucent
Orinoco cards incompatible with hostap.  That's why it's important that
we use version strings rather than manfid.

I just realized that there is a very simple solution that would cover
many other obscure cards with "manfid 0x0156, 0x0002" without
conflicting with Lucent cards.  We only need the manfid plus the first
version string, "INTERSIL", which would exclude Lucent Orinoco cards.
