Hi Ben,
The firmware was submitted to firmware/bnx2x folder using
96b8e1a0e96bd30ffb07e739b29b8c4c5759b93f in IHEX form with appropriate
changes in firmware/Makefile and firmware/WHENCE.
So it's in the linux tree but not linux-firmware?  Well that's fairly

David, we need to either keep on importing changes from the linux tree
or get rid of the firmware directory altogether.  I notice that one new
driver has even added a blob there recently.


I don't understand everything that has been said about this topic, I'll ask a simple question: are the firmwares going to be included in the firmware-bnx2x package anytime soon or is there a way to build them and add them manually on a debian unstable machine ?

thanks :)
