For example:

- the firmware_class infrastructure has been added in more than 100 
  drivers (as of 2.6.17)

- the qla2xxx firmware has been dropped from the kernel sources, and is
  now shiped on ftp.qlogic.com

- new drivers for devices requiring a firmware to be uploaded during
  initialization are included without embedded firmware (for example the
  ipw3945 driver, or aic94xx which has just been added in 2.6.19-rc)

Best regards
