Intersil's website has ram downloadable 1.5.6 firmware, i've had limited
success with it (data works for a while, then stops working).  I've only
tried it once though, and only with one piece of hardware.  I suspect I
needed proper entries for PDA records which were missing rather than trying
to use the defaults.  Either that, or I needed updated primary firmware.

You need to get the intersil driver and run it through the split images
script included in utils/ with hostap.  There were posts a while ago on
here regarding doing this.
