This depends on your target board configuration. Usually, I just copy
the kernel modules (hostap.o, hostap_crypt_*.o, hostap_cs.o,
hostap_pci.o, hostap_plx.o) from driver/modules directory to
/lib/modules/<kernel ver>/pcmcia (or some similar path). If needed,
depmod could be run here to update the module depency lists. Getting
modules loaded automatically would require KMOD or hotplug to be
configured.
