Description of problem:
During the boot process, hotplug can not load the firmware for my WLAN card (Prism54). Below is the output of dmesg after boot.

eth1: resetting device...
eth1: uploading firmware...
audit(1118949170.105:3): avc:  denied  { getattr } for  pid=2148 comm="firmware.agent" name=isl3890 dev=hda3 ino=6307283 scontext=system_u:system_r:hotplug_t tcontext=user_u:object_r:user_home_t tclass=file

prism54: request_firmware() failed for 'isl3890'
eth1: could not upload firmware ('isl3890')
eth1: islpci_reset: failure
eth1: resetting device...


The card gets initialized correctly if it is put in after bootup has completed.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hotplug-2004_09_23-7, kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put in WLAN card
2. Power on and boot computer
  

Actual Results:  The WLAN card gets detected and initialized. However, the boot process hangs here.

Expected Results:  The WLAN card should have been initialized and the boot process should continue.
