adm8211 doesn't requires firmware. And as you and Eduard Bloch suggested, hotplug/udev isn't mandatory - I finally managed to get it working without. No change required - I don't know what I missed last time. Maybe just a few hours of sleep...

A new version of adm8211-source is available at http://web.ncf.ca/jmranger/adm8211/ which now declares (hotplug | udev) as Recommends instead of Depends.

The [RFC/RFS] tag is still valid :)
