Subject[214/272] hostap_cs: fix sleeping function called from invalid context
2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com>

commit 4e5518ca53be29c1ec3c00089c97bef36bfed515 upstream.

pcmcia_request_irq() and pcmcia_enable_device() are intended
to be called from process context (first function allocate memory
with GFP_KERNEL, second take a mutex). We can not take spin lock
and call them.

It's safe to move spin lock after pcmcia_enable_device() as we
still hold off IRQ until dev->base_addr is 0 and driver will
not proceed with interrupts when is not ready.

Patch resolves:
