You're talking about the files in mwavem-1.0.4/src/dsp, right?
Interestingly enough, those files are in RIFF format. It's a structured
multimedia container format. Embedded somewhere in the header of v90.dsp is
the string "MICROCODE SOURCE MATERIALS. MWAVE MICROCODE. (C) COPYRIGHT IBM
CORP. 1997. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED." It also looks like there's full symbols.
Perhaps these files are the source code, when opened with some proprietary
dsp firmware editor we don't have?
Has anyone asked IBM yet?
