I hardcoded the driver to behave in the same was as when no_primary=1
was set. I removed the module option, too, so if you happen to have that
parameter somewhere in configuration files, it must be removed.

I added an example script, utils/hostap_fw_load, for making firmware
loading bit easier. I'm running this from /etc/pcmcia/wireless before
starting in interface configuration. This script should make it possible
to plug cards with full flash as well as cards without flash and get
more or less identical user experience ;-).
