And reason for the failure..

PK010101.HEX and SF010704.HEX are for non-volatile (flash) downloading

Hey.. you did not include the prism2_srec command that you used to
produce that one ;-). Flash download is disabled in the default driver
build. You will need to define PRISM2_NON_VOLATILE_DOWNLOAD in addition
to PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT (see hostap_config.h) to get the possibility
of frying your flash ;-).
