I can reproduce this problem. Something must be wrong with flash
download in CVS HostAP. It used to work properly.
"Could not read download buffer parameters" means that
HFA384X_RID_DOWNLOADBUFFER (0xFD01) cannot be accessed in
Quick check shows that even HFA384X_RID_NICID cannot be accessed at that
point. It means that the card is in a wrong state when
prism2_download_nonvolatile() is called.
I hope to find the problem and post a patch, but I'll only appreciate if
somebody beats me at that :-)
