Why these changes?

Why do you need to drop the b43 firmware installer?

Why do you need -qq?  Why change --download-only to -d?  Did you add
-y just for speed, or did the script not work without it?

Why do you need to ignore firmware-linux but not
firmware-linux-nonfree?  Why do you need to ignore firmware-linux?
