Description of problem:
Executing cardctl scheme <new scheme> to change to a new pcmcia scheme
configuration does not reconfigure a wireless device to new settings.  I
have not tried it changing the scheme with any non-wireless devices to
verify if they work.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  /sbin/cardctl scheme work ('work' scheme configured in
2.  restart pcmcia or eject/insert card to get it to reconfigure.
3.  /sbin/cardctl scheme home (different scheme configured similarly to
4. still has work iwconfig and IP address settings.

Actual Results:  Still had same settings

Expected Results:  iwconfig eth0 should report the new settings for the
different scheme and an IP address should not be available since the new
scheme settings are no longer valid at the current location.
