Has anyone asked Linus what his feelings are regarding firmware?  If he
thinks it's acceptable (or possibly even the 'preferred form of
modification') to have in Linux and that it's not violating the GPL then 
I don't think we have a problem.  In these cases of ambiguity it makes
sense to me to ask the copyright holder to clarify for us instead of
assuming that they're violating their own license.
