I did a lot of google searches, this time it was not so straightforward even
for those who knows what dfsg-nonfree and lkml means :-)

The difficult part is finding the firmware blob right now.

A quick google search gave me just headaches. Thanks for the update to
request_firmware() to Bastian, but a lot of users, could be misoriented by
the difficulty to make this driver work on sid yet. *

A gentle question on IRC at #debian-kernel served me better, there is some
code in the source package firmware-nonfree so, (*) a package
named "firmware-bnx" will be uploaded somewhere in the future to unstable.

Meanwhile it can be found on

# svn co svn://svn.debian.org/kernel/dists/trunk/firmware-nonfree
