This patch is not OK because it still sends reconnect USB-command. It 
may lead to situation stick reconnects but driver does not except that.

It seems like problem is that it sends USB-reconnect command to the 
stick firmware immediately after firmware is downloaded. Sometimes 
(especially Kernel 2.6.27) USB-reconnect command will be rejected by 
stick firmware because firmware is not started yet. Small sleep just 
before USB-reconnect is needed to ensure stick firmware is running.

Is there anyone who has this problem and can make & test patch?
