This is in firmware-brcm80211, seems like you have that installed.

This second file doesn't appear to be in Debian.

I note that firmware-brcm80211 also doesn't contain any of the .txt
files that are in the brcm/ directory in the firmware-nonfree source
package. Please report a bug against firmware-brcm80211 asking for the
.txt files to be installed, since the brcmf_sdio_prepare_fw_request
function in the Linux kernel driver loads both .bin and .txt files
from the firmware directory.

I note the second file is not in the upstream linux-firmware git
repository. I think you will need to obtain that from FriendlyARM and
probably talk them into getting it into the upstream linux-firmware
git repository.


Once it has gotten into the upstream linux-firmware git repository,
the Debian firmware-nonfree source package can be updated to the
version that contains the file and the bug I mentioned above will mean
the second file will get into the firmware-brcm80211 binary package.
