It appears loading firmware seems to work but I can't confirm a whole
install with rtl8192cu since right after "no missing firmware" is
written in syslog I'm getting prompted with a list of modules to pick
from, and explicitly selecting rtl8192cu doesn't change a thing there.

Trying modprobe -r on it leads to a kernel panic with a stacktrace in
the usb stack…

This might be a quirk somewhere in the kvm passthrough code but last
time I played with wpa2 (with firmwares directly included on the
installation image though) everything just worked; this might have to do
with the firmware dance… anyway, that shouldn't prevent us from going

Tagging accordingly, thanks for your work.

I'm not sure why changelog and comments mention kernel + udev. AFAICT
that's a feature that got dropped on the udev side only, so mentioning
only userland (udev) would probably be more precise/correct.

An editorial note: Next time, can you please commit using something like
"debcommit -ae" and edit the commit message? A 230-column wide "summary"
line isn't much useful/readable… Having a (real) summary and a bug
{number,closure} on the first line and the rest below really helps.
