It does not work yet. Downloading and starting primary firmware seems to
require something different than station firmware downloading and
anything I have tried just "kills" the card (it asserts CmdBusy and COR
sreset is needed to recover from this). I don't know whether
documentation for doing PRI download to RAM is available somewherer. If
it is, I would be willing to implement this feature. Just guessing what
is needed for it seems to take too much time.
