I don't think anybody can write this procedure without careful testing
with your hardware.  Testing is the key to being safe.  That said, the
sequence should be approximately following:

update the driver and prism2_srec
bring the interface down
unload the hostap_pci module
load the hostap_pci module
run "prism2_srec wlan0 PK010101.HEX SF010704.HEX"
check output for errors
run "prism2_srec -f wlan0 PK010101.HEX SF010704.HEX"
check the kernel log to make sure the firmware has been updated
restart the software working with interface
test that the interface is functioning
