Primary Firmware Download

Hello again,

after some debugging it seems that everything I wrote is completely
irrelevant to the problem with Intersil firmware.

The real problem is the start address.  If you take the S7 record from the
corresponding secondary firmware and put it to the primary firmware image,
the download works.

The driver still shows the old version of primary firmware.  I don't know
if this means that the firmware wasn't reprogrammed, or maybe the version
is cached somewhere.  Anyway, it's a separate problem.

This was tested with a Linksys WCF12 card:

wlan0: NIC: id=0x801b v1.0.0
wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.0
wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v1.5.6

I was trying to update the primary firmware to 1.1.1.
