Bug#687927: firmware-realtek: Missing rtl8411-1.fw and rtl8402-1.fw

Package: firmware-realtek
Version: 0.36
Followup-For: Bug #687927

I've downloaded the latest firmware from the upstream git repository
and now the network works:

Ben, do you think that realtek-firmware in testing could be updated to
add support for this network card?

Just to help the casual reader, here it is what i've done:
- From the compressed upstream archive i've extraceted the following
  firmware from the rtl_nic folder (those requested by the curses
  interface) to /root/:
- Under /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/ i've created symlinks to the files
  extracted under /root/. Doing this i can visually recognize what i've
  customized, helping restoring the original state.
- Reinstalled the latest kernel from experimental.
