Re: Firmware removal progress

Here's an updated overview; I think this now covers all sourceless
firmware/microcode left in linux-2.6:

driver     bug     "source" file(s)             licence            action
cassini    498631  net/cassini.h                GPLv2              remove
dabusb     502663  media/video/dabfirmware.h    BSDish             move (dabusb)

r128       494007  char/drm/r128_cce.c          MIT                move (ati)
radeon     494009  char/drm/radeon_microcode.h  MIT                move (ati)
starfire   501152  net/starfire_firmware.h      unmodified redist  move (adaptec)

whiteheat  502668  usb/serial/whiteheat_fw.h    GPLv2              remove

"Action" is what my changes would do.  If the licence requires source
distribution, remove.  If the licence allows binary-only distribution,
move to firmware-nonfree (the names given are the package names minus
the leading "firmware-".  In the case of dsp56k we can provide the

My modified firmware-nonfree is at <http://womble.decadent.org.uk/tmp/>.
I'll post a new patch for linux-2.6 tomorrow.
