Bug#927917: firmware-atheros: missing ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-6.bin

Package: firmware-atheros
Version: 20190114-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

While installing a Samgung laptop using the Buster RC1 Debian Installer,
the installer kept asking for ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-6.bin. I
inspected the firmware-atheros*.deb in the firmware partition that I
prepared in the USB drive, and indeed there was no such file. I
downloaded the source for firmware-nonfree, and noticed that file was
there, it was just not included in the binary.

The attached patch makes sure that the file is included in the binary
package. The version number to use in the defines file was obtained by
looking at the commit that introduced firmware-6.bin:

To get it to build locally, I also had to update debian/rules.defs, but
I assume that is already part of your workflow.
