lack of tg3 in kernel -- please contact Broadcom

Relevance: Several x86-64 boards have Broadcom NICs (including mine)

Problem: The Debian kernel maintainer is removing tg3 and other drivers
with unlicensed firmware from the kernel.

You can help: I've opened up a ticket with Broadcom requesting that they
release their NIC firmware as Open Source or release specs for the NIC
so it can be worked around.

Please do NOT reply to this list, starting a giant flamewar. Please ask
Broadcom nicely for Open Source firmware or NIC specs.
