Default Bug#588097: firmware-nonfree: Please consider adding firmware for TI Serial devices

Package: firmware-nonfree
Version: 0.25
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

Could you please consider adding firmware from
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git

for the TI and MultiTech USB serial devices. I've just filed a bug on
linux-2.6 requesting that the module is built.

The relevant files are:

mark@steerpike:~/src/linux-firmware$ ls ti_* mts_* -1
mts_cdma.fw
mts_edge.fw
mts_gsm.fw
mts_mt9234mu.fw
mts_mt9234zba.fw
ti_3410.fw
ti_5052.fw

If you'd like a full patch adding a binary package etc, please let me know.

Thanks,

Mark

I actually added these already, but haven't uploaded them yet.

These don't have any licence information.

Being selfish for a moment, the one I need turns out to be mts_gsm.fw
(which isn't that surprising given the hardware).

Maybe the best thing to do is just to ship all the ones we have license
info for? People can always grab the other ones from upstream if they
need them (I'd say that I'll chase sorting out license info, but I'd be
lying if I did because I'm unlikely to have time, sorry)
