Hi,

I have Sparklan WL-360F (0x8013) PCI card with flashed primary 1.1.0
and secondary 1.4.9 fw:

- Nov 27 10:12:16 wintermute kernel: prism2_hw_config: initialized
in18566 iterations
- Nov 27 10:12:16 wintermute kernel: wlan0: trying to read PDA

- Nov 27 10:12:16 wintermute kernel: wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v1.4.9

I tried upload new firmware (primary 1.1.1, secondary 1.5.6) into RAM
with prism2_srec (drivers and utils was builded from yesterdays CVS
snapshoot)

Secondary fw upload went with no problem (aster that i had PRI: 1.1.0
STA: 1.5.6) however primary fw did problems:

If I repeated command (run ./prism2_srec -vr wlan0 ak010101.hex again)
it showed

and I couldn't upload other fw without remove hostap from kernel. It
is not going to hurt me, I'm fine with 1.0.0/1.5.6, just currious what
this sort of errors means (PDR plugging problem ???)

just for accuracy, when upload STA 1.5.6 I got:
