Bug#752701: initramfs-tools: Does not load firmware for in kernel wireless drivers

Another reason is that if wireless firmware is not loaded in the initramfs then it does not get loaded at all.

This is a general problem that I have had now with three different wireless drivers. The problem is that the built in wireless driver starts working before the disk file systems have been mounted, and hence the firmware is not available.

It is a bug, not a matter of a user setting. Whether the solution adopted lies with the initramfs or somewhere else is something for developers to decide.

How can I progress this?
