Pavel,
we have now tried to compile and below are the result reported from 
Anton.

I've tried SanDisk Plus CF with hostap 0.2.0 with patch from Pavel 
Roskin applied. The drivers were compiled with
firmware download support (including non-volitile) - I was able to 
flash my Ambicom CF card with the latest firmware
successfully.

The Sandisk card still fails to initialize. Here are some messages that 
might be usefull:

Upon card insertion
