update loses prism54 firmware
I did an upgrade of my testing install today and everything went
basically smoothly (a goof up on my part caused the xorg upgrade to fail
a couple of times, but I figured it out).
One thing that wasn't expected was that my wireless card stopped
working. /var/log/syslog was complaining that the firmware wasn't
getting loaded, and sure enough the upgrade seems to have removed the
I was able to download a new copy and placed it in
/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware and everything is working again. But is this
the right spot, now that I'm running udev instead of hotplug? I'd like
to get this into the "right" spot so that a future upgrade doesn't toss
the file again.
