Ok, seems to work, what is "Plug record length mismatch"?
Should I worry?  Card is working fine after the upgrade.
Here's the screen capture:


bash-2.05# hostap_diag wlan0
Host AP driver diagnostics information for 'wlan0'

NICID: id=0x8013 v1.0.0 (PRISM II (2.5) Mini-PCI (SST parallel flash))
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.0.7
STAID: id=0x001f v1.3.6 (station firmware)
bash-2.05# ./prism2_srec wlan0 PK010101.HEX SF010704.HEX
srec summary for PK010101.HEX
Component: 0x0015 1.1.1 (primary firmware)

srec summary for SF010704.HEX
Component: 0x001f 1.7.4 (station firmware)


Verifying update compatibility and combining data:
Plug record length mismatch (PDR=0x0001): 12 != 16
==> extend from default
PRI: old iface 1:4-4 new iface 1:4-4
Allowing S3 overlap due to CRC-16 signature at 0x007e17fe (was: ffff)
OK.
bash-2.05# ./prism2_srec -f wlan0 PK010101.HEX SF010704.HEX

Downloading to non-volatile memory (flash).
Note! This can take about 30 seconds. Do _not_ remove card during download.
OK.
Components after download:
   NICID: 0x8013 v1.0.0
   PRIID: 0x0015 v1.1.1
   STAID: 0x001f v1.7.4
bash-2.05#


What a great thing!
