wpa_supplicant and pcmcia atmel driver (kernel embedded version)

Hi all!
I have a Sitecom WLAN-011 (with atmel chipset) and I use it with kernel
(2.6.10) driver for pcmcia card with atmel chipset (atmel_cs). It loads
automatically the firmware with hotplug and the loaded firmware claims
to support WPA:

mario at smeagol:~$ cat /proc/driver/atmel
Driver version:         0.96
Firmware version:       4.1 build 13
Firmware location:      atmel_at76c502-wpa.bin loaded by hotplug
MAC memory type:        EEPROM
Regulatory domain:      Europe
Host CRC checking:      Off
WPA-capable firmware:   Yes
Current state:          Ready

If I launch wpa_supplicant (I would use WPA but also only use
wpa_supplicant as a replacement of waproamd with WEP wlans) this is what
I obtain:

root at smeagol:~# wpa_supplicant -i eth1 -Datmel
wpa_driver_atmel_set_wpa eth1
ioctl[ATMEL_WPA_IOCTL_PARAM]: Operation not supported
ioctl[ATMEL_WPA_IOCTL_PARAM]: Operation not supported
Failed to enable WPA in the driver.
wpa_driver_atmel_set_wpa eth1
ioctl[ATMEL_WPA_IOCTL_PARAM]: Operation not supported
ioctl[ATMEL_WPA_IOCTL_PARAM]: Operation not supported
Failed to disable WPA in the driver.
wpa_driver_atmel_set_drop_unencrypted - not yet implemented
wpa_driver_atmel_set_countermeasures - not yet implemented

root at smeagol:~# wpa_supplicant -i eth1 -Dwext
ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
Failed to enable WPA in the driver.
ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
Failed to disable WPA in the driver.
ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported

Is it supposed to work? Can it work?

Thanks for any information you can provide.
