Is that possible that you are looking firmware file from wrong 
directory? I mean that you have for example /lib/firmware/kernel-2.6.1/ 
and /lib/firmware/kernel-2.6.2/ other having 4.73 and the other 4.95? 
Remove all af9015 firmwares from kernel-x.x.x directories and leave 
4.95.0 to /lib/firmware/. Then take unplug stick and boot machine and 
plug stick again.

I see from dmesg log that firmware copy to 2nd frontend fails. This is 
due to fact that currently driver has hard coded checksum for 4.95.0.

It should be polled. There is code for than in the driver already, but 
it is disabled currently.
