Well.. Yes, but not with the releases Host AP driver since I have not
included kernel-side support for non-volatile download. I have written
this code, but it has a bug somewhere so I haven't released it yet.

It is a bit difficult to fix a card with broken primary firmware
(especially, if it is HFA3841 card, which apparently requires somewhat
modified PC Card adapter to get the card in genesis mode). I don't think
I will be testing that flashing code before I either find the bug or get
a working system that can initialize the card firmware completely
(i.e., using genesis mode and flashing all new images).
