That's not entirely true, according to
http://doolittle.icarus.com/~larry/fwinventory/2.6.17.html :-

  Relative to sarge, 13 new sourceless-firmware-contaminated files have
  found their way into Debian's Linux source tree. They are:

    * drivers/net/bnx2_fw.h
    * drivers/net/cassini.h
    * drivers/net/e100.c
    * drivers/net/starfire_firmware.h
    * drivers/net/tg3.c
    * drivers/scsi/ql1040_fw.h
    * drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/ql2100_fw.c
    * drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/ql2200_fw.c
    * drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/ql2300_fw.c
    * drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/ql2322_fw.c
    * drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/ql2400_fw.c
    * drivers/usb/serial/ti_fw_3410.h
    * drivers/usb/serial/ti_fw_5052.h

In general, that's true and a cause for rejoicing.
