I finally got it running! I downgraded from kernel 3.2 to 3.0-pm, and then it worked out of the box. The driver is buggy though (only about 100KB/s, which I one of my colleagues has confirmed). But better than nothing :-)

Try removing all of the extra firmware pairs and just leaving the sd8686.bin
and sd8686_helper.bin in the /lib/firmware directory by renaming either the
v9 or v8 firmware to the appropriate file name like you did.  I can't
remember which firmware version works with the the driver/chipset so try

Also, I'm not sure where you got those firmware files, but the file size of
your sd8686.bin does not match that found in the sysroot of my OpenEmbedded
build (filesize of 124244 bytes).  Are you using Bitbake/OpenEmbedded to
build your rootfs?
