You forgot to mention the version of HostAP.  No released version
recognizes "no_primary", it was used temporarily in old CVS versions.

HostAP 0.2.0 includes a script util/hostap_fw_load that shows how to load
the firmware.

You should use "-s" at this point to skip PDA reading.  PDA is not
available yet.
