sudo chown -R root.root /lib/firmware/zd1211
sudo find /lib/firmware -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
sudo find /lib/firmware/zd1211 -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

(chown syntax is wrong; it is better to make sure all the directories are
readable as well - directory's 'execution' permission means one 
can cd to it, nothing more, unlike file's execution permission).
