Just for the record, this approach didn't work.  I took the PDA file from
/proc/net/hostap/wlan0/pda, saved it and modified prism2_srec to use the
saved file.  I could use it with the PLX adapter to avoid second load of
the primary firmware.  However, the same card would exhibit the same
problems in the TI bridge as when PDA wasn't plugged.
