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: https://salsa.debian.org/jscott/open-ath9k-htc-firmware 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.
