Have you tried putting the pcmcia drivers in /etc/modules?
Might require messing around with modules.conf (or Debian equivilent)
You could also use pre-up in /etc/network/interfaces. Seems messy
While I don't use PCMCIA, all my network drivers are in /etc/modules
and I have never had problems with them (other than me trashing /etc/modules).
