Default Bug#553710: firmware-linux-nonfree: Package description doesn't include Tigon firmware.

Package: firmware-linux-nonfree
Version: 0.21
Severity: minor

firmware-linux-nonfree includes the Tigon tg3 firmware but it's not listed in
the package description. Perhaps there's a way to generate the description from
the contents?

I had to install this package to resolve these messages when upgrading to the
2.6.30 kernel:

W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/tigon/tg3_tso5.bin for module tg3
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/tigon/tg3_tso.bin for module tg3
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/tigon/tg3.bin for module tg3

Fortunately the files list shows this is the package I need so it didn't take
too much hunting.

Thanks for all your work!
