Either I have misinterrepted compatibility requirements or the firmware image you are trying to use requires a newer variant of the above mentioned interface.

However, you should note that secondary firmware images should be loaded into flash, not RAM. In addition, even though prism2_srec (at least in theory) supports firmware downloading into flash, the current driver version does not (i.e., you cannot upgrade secondary firmware yet with this driver).
