  Description     : libre firmware for AR9170 USB wireless adapters

This is carl9170, the libre firmware for Qualcomm Atheros's AR9170
802.11n USB wireless adapters that complements the carl9170 Linux

carl9170 is already shipped in firmware-linux-free, but the primary
objective of transitioning it into this new source package is to get it
building from source. This is possible with the SuperH bare-metal cross
toolchain I'm packaging.

I will need sponsorship for this package (and am currently seeking
sponsors for the cross toolchain too); the Kernel Team may help with
the former. Regardless, co-maintainers/uploaders are welcome and I'd be
glad to help prospective contributors get adapters, as they can be a
little tricky to find.
