This ID makes me wonder if it's some kind of Lucent chipset rather than
Prism3.  (0x0156, 0x0002) was used by both Lucent and Intersil cards in
the past.

It's not clear what last line says.  I think you should not read CCSR
(mapped to HCR in Prism chipsets).  You should write there the correct
value, and it's something you should guess or determine based on the
configuration of the card.

See table on the page 2-3 in http://home.eunet.cz/jt/wifi/Download.pdf

Currently hostap tries 0x1f and 0x0f to set genesis mode and 0x17 and 0x07
respectively to use it.  You may need to play with other bits.
