Default Bug#613536: firmware-realtek: Please include the binary firmware for Realtek

Perhaps it is easier or better to grab the rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin
firmware from the linux-firmware repository:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git;a=summary

The corresponding license is included there as LICENCE.rtlwifi_firmware.txt .

I've been happily using it for weeks with compat-wireless and
linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 on my Thinkpad with Linux Mint Debian
Edition. Further details at:
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/ThinkPad_11b/g/n_Wireless_LAN_Mini-PCI_Express_Adapter_III

Recent Dell Minis feature this wifi adapter, too, so I guess it is or
will become quite common.

I'm just about to switch to the 2.6.38 kernel which includes the
corresponding rtl8192ce driver, but unfortunately it is not enabled in
the Debian unstable package, yet. However, my manual rebuild of that
package with the module enabled works well so far, so maybe I just
need to send a request for it.

Cheers, Jonas
