Bug#647897: firmware-linux-nonfree: please include fw for ATI/AMD 6300M (e.g. 6470M) Chipsets, found e.g. in some newer HP Laptops

Package: firmware-linux-nonfree
Version: 0.28+squeeze1
Severity: normal


after installing firmware-linux-nonfree I still had errors in dmesg with kernel

[  898.849606] radeon 0000:01:00.0: radeon: using MSI.
[  898.849706] [drm] radeon: irq initialized.
[  898.849719] [drm] GART: num cpu pages 131072, num gpu pages 131072
[  898.851091] [drm] Loading CAICOS Microcode
[  898.884786] ni_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/CAICOS_pfp.bin"
[  898.884791] [drm:evergreen_startup] *ERROR* Failed to load firmware!

so I asked google about it, found a slackware package with firmware...

  953  sudo cp -a lib/firmware/radeon/CAICOS_pfp.bin /lib/firmware/radeon/
  957  sudo cp -a lib/firmware/radeon/CAICOS_me.bin /lib/firmware/radeon/
  961  sudo cp -a lib/firmware/radeon/BTC_rlc.bin /lib/firmware/radeon/
  965  sudo cp -a lib/firmware/radeon/CAICOS_mc.bin /lib/firmware/radeon/

Could You please include these firmware files in firmware-linux-nonfree?

Now for some more tries about "vga_switcheroo" and turning the non-used not-
supported DIScrete graphics card off...

Kind regards,
