I guess it is in userspace connection manager stuff. One could verify it 
by trying to bring wi-fi up via wireless-tools (commandline tools - 
iwconfig etc.), they are in maemo Bora repository. Small howto was in 
maemo list month ago or so with subject "WLAN connectivity using only 
wireless-tools". Sadly WPA does not work with this yet.

One could also install syslog, use dbus-monitor or directly strace 
wlancond with old and new kernel and see where it breaks.

If you say the firmware is same one could also try to recompile older 
cx3110x driver for new kernel. But this won't help if it is caused by 
some generic network changes in linux kernel between .18 and .21.
