armel, mips and mipsel are in good shape, so fine with me.

Just a heads up, drivers/staging/rtl8192e/r819xE_phy.c (a newly merged
staging driver in 2.6.32) may have introduced new firmware blobs:
- Rtl8190PciAGCTAB_Array
- Rtl8190PciPHY_REGArray
- Rtl8190PciPHY_REG_1T2RArray
- Rtl8190PciRadioA_Array
- Rtl8190PciRadioB_Array
- Rtl8190PciRadioC_Array
- Rtl8190PciRadioD_Array
- Rtl8192PciEAGCTAB_Array
- Rtl8192PciEPHY_REG_1T2RArray
- Rtl8192PciERadioA_Array
- Rtl8192PciERadioB_Array
- possibly more

basically the same content which was pruned from
drivers/staging/rtl8192su/r8192S_FwImgDTM.h (dropped in 2.6.32)
drivers/staging/rtl8192su/r8192SU_HWImg.c
drivers/staging/rtl8192su/r819xU_firmware_img.c (dropped in 2.6.32)
in 2.6.31, therefore I'd suggest to add the following patch (applies to
r14655 of dists/trunk/linux-2.6/):

By the way, is there some kind of description how to extract rtl8168d-1.fw
and rtl8168d-2.fw from the vanilla kernel source? I would have access to a
RTL8168d/8111d, RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_25 device and it seems to be pretty common
on newer mainboards).
eth0: RTL8168d/8111d at 0xf7e1a000, 00:1c:c0:ee:12:58, XID 081000c0 IRQ 28

Please consider applying http://bugs.debian.org/555680#15 as well, to
remove some additional means of providing a wlan password from bugreports.

I do check for big tables of numbers in the diff for each new kernel
version. These are lookup tables, not firmware.

No, I'll try to add them to firmware-nonfree some time before uploading
to unstable.

I will do, but probably not for this upload.
