The firmware is available at: http://damien.bergamini.free.fr/packages/openbsd/uath-firmware-1.0p0.tgz (3b976a7f9319289ab6c5891bc103a431 */lib/firmware/uath-ar5523.bin), however the bigger problem is the kernel module (your particular device ID doesn't appear to be covered yet either) which is neither mainline yet, nor ported to kernel >= 2.6.34 for the time being.

Unless you want to start kernel debugging, I'd suggest to spend ~6-15 EUR for a new USB wlan card with decent mainline driver support.
