How exactly did you get the firmware?  Did you do a "git clone", or did
you download from using Firefox or another web
browser?  I've heard reports that the gitweb server is screwing up
firmware when downloading through browsers.  If you want to ensure you
get the firmware correctly, always clone the repo with git directly.

What are the md5 signatures of your helper and main firmware files?
