I guess the majority of users are on amd64/i386 systems, but as the firmware
is for USB devices it would be useful for all of them, including, say,
Raspberry Pi users wanting to minimize use of proprietary firmware.

Actually with my draft udeb, it just uses the same workaround to find
the firmware as it does on the installed system, by setting the appropriate
option via a modprobe configuration file. It really should be as simple as
pulling in the udeb into the images:

Assuming the freeze doesn't get in the way, this will probably need to go
through NEW and might be able to be merged in that way.
