Bug#1036565: debian-installer-12-netboot-amd64: Installers needed b43 ucode16_mimo.fw, had to eth0 net install + manual firmware-b43-installer, MacBookPro5,5

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Tried to install with live installer on USB stick, plain installer on USB
stick, then net installer on USB stick

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

Installers popped up error - wanted subject firmware to continue; putting
downloaded (standard) firmware on a second USB stick also failed. Finally
connected to ethernet over cable and installed with net installer on USB stick.

Then installed firmware-b43-installer manually.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Successful install eventually. :)

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Needed firmware included with installers so install using WiFi would just work.
