Bug#464197: [linux-image-2.6.24-1-686] license issues with firmware for module snd-cs46xx

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-686
Version: 2.6.24-5

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

Dear DDs,

I was wondering if the kernel and alsa developers are aware of this
problem—as Paul Wise stated [1], they are not allowed to distribute this
firmware—and if not, if there should be opened a bug upstream.

Doing this, maybe we could get more help in this issue and maybe some
developers have some better contact channels to cirrus.

Secondly, I also want to contact cirrus [2] as Dann did, but I cannot
find the part number CS46… in the drop down list. What part number,
should I use? And are there already templates to write in such cases?

I hope this issue will be fixed soon. Thanks,
