P.S. This could be worked around by using the "delayed_enable=1"
parameter. I could resurrect DWL-520 and flash it back to PRI 1.1.1 and
STA 1.7.4. I also could load both PRI and STA firmware in RAM by
prism2_srec -g wlan0 ak010104.hex
prism2_srec -r wlan0 rf010704.hex

wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.4
wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v1.7.4
"1.1.4" confirms that the new primary firmware has been loaded.
