Hmmm... The firmware not found problem clearly suggest that the partition
containing the file it it's not mounted when the card is initialized. ¿Are
you sure that those modules are really compiled as modules and not included
embedded into the kernel?

The firmware files are usually contained in /lib/firmware (at least, in my
Sabayon/Gentoo box). ¿Maybe in yours the firmware are on any partition that
for any unknown reason is mounted later? Check dmesg to see if the card is
initialized before disks are mounted.
