First of all, the driver does not load any firmware into the chip.
Second, you're not supposed to tell me your interpretation of what
happened: you're supposed to cut&paste the messages into an e-mail
so that I can see for myself what happened.
Please show me all of the information that led you to your conclusion
that this alleged firmware upload failed.

Ok, note to all reading this: if I ask for information and you don't
have the information available, don't bother sending me an e-mail
just to tell me that you don't have the information available. Wait
until you do have the information available, and then e-mail me. You'll
save precious time and electrons.
