Unfortunately in this case it is simply does not appear legal for
Debian to redistribute this firmware. I've sent a request to Cirrus
Logic for a license granting free redistribution. I doubt I'm the
first, but its worth a try..

That aside, I wonder if there's any good reasons to not take the split
out patch, allowing these cards to function if the user chooses to
manually install this firmware image.
