prism2_srec flashing - Exact NICID was not found ...

When I was trying to upgrade the station firmware on a 0x8008 v1.0.1 card,
I got a "Exact NICID was not found.." warning.  See the detail output

Can I proceed to flash with "-i" option?  In fact I seem to remember
Jouni saying "-i" option is ignored when doing flash firmware
upgrade.  Does this mean I can't upgrade station firmware on this card?

Has anybody tried 1.5.6 station firmware on this chip revision?  If
this version works, I wonder if I should just change the program
and flash it anyway.
