Can you try

echo 1 | sudo tee $sys_pm_wlan/power_on
echo s3c2440-sdi | sudo tee $sys_wlan_driver/unbind 2> /dev/null > /dev/null
echo s3c2440-sdi | sudo tee $sys_wlan_driver/bind

where the variables are

$ grep wlan .sysfsrc
export sys_pm_wlan=/sys/bus/platform/drivers/gta02-pm-wlan/gta02-pm-wlan.0
export sys_wlan_driver=/sys/bus/platform/drivers/s3c2440-sdi
