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 :)
