Why doesn't the built-in driver work in 2.6.32? Thanks! This is a staging driver (i.e. low-quality) which we have not been requested to build. We have removed the firmware from it in order to comply with the DFSG. I will investigate whether it is possible to make the driver work with an external firmware image.
