Bug#687737: Please package ene-ub6250 firmware for ums_eneub6250 driver

Package: firmware-linux-nonfree
Version: 0.36
Severity: wishlist


Please consider packaging the ene-ub6250 firmware from the
linux-firmware git tree, used by the ums_eneub6250 driver.
This firmware is required for the correct operation of ENE UB6250 SD
card readers which can be found at least on Acer Aspire One netbooks, a
widely distributed model.

Currently we have to download and install it manually in
/lib/firmware/ene-ub6250/ which is far from ideal for new Debian users.

I hope I'm reporting to the correct package, whether you include that
firmware in firmware-linux-nonfree or you create a new, independent package.

Best regards.
