Default Bug#464197: Concerns about CS46xx driver

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi Jaroslav Kysela!

Some folks and I have some concerns about something found in CS46xx
Cirrus Logic firmware[1].
Unfortunately it does not provide a license with it, which, as our
understandings[2], it makes it undistributable.

Do you think It will be possible for you to get the proper permissions
to license it as the software it comes with (GPL)?
If not, do you think it would be possible for you to provide us a
possible "direct" communication channel with Cirrus Logic Legal staff
or the respective one?

Thanks in advance!
Greetings,
