This is definitely a blocker. I am confused though, as volume_id is only 
required for hald-probe-storage and hald-probe-volume, which should not 
block hal from starting.

Does hal start up at all and if yes, what processes are running (ps 
ax|grep -i hal)?

As your problem seems related to networkmanager, is the interface 
present? Do the missing dmesg lines (about firmware and LED) show up 
when you simply run ifconfig wlan0 up?
