Be warned that the chip is utter crap anyway, so do not get your hopes
high. As to the driver, it might have some timing problems in
initilisation phase, try patch from  if you see that.
Is your particular device added to the list sdio_ar6000_ids in
hif2.c? Also try to enable various debugging messages (different
methods needed for different driver parts).
Be free, use free (http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html) software!
