Not with current Host AP driver. Non-volatile download is not included
in the CVS version. I have written code for it, but it is known to be
faulty (as in killing cards) and I will not be including code for
non-volatile download before it is fully tested and known to work. I'm
using Windows tools for updating firmware if I need to do non-volatile
