Default Bug#481234: firmware-nonfree: Include firmware for p54 driver

Package: firmware-nonfree
Severity: wishlist

p54 is a driver for wlan cards based on prism54 hardware. The p54pi and
p54usb kernel modules require the following firmware files to operate:

p54pci.c: err = request_firmware(&fw_entry, "isl3886", &priv->pdev->dev);
p54usb.c: err = request_firmware(&fw_entry, "isl3887usb_bare", &priv->udev->dev);
p54usb.c: err = request_firmware(&fw_entry, "isl3890usb", &priv->udev->dev);

Back when I was packaging p54 as an out-of-tree kernel module I put
together a script to download the firmware at install-time. It used the
following data to work out which files to download and what to name them
on the local machine:

fw_url = 'http://prism54.org/firmware/'
firmwares = (('isl????usb', '', '9284895edb77ee88ec680cba4b90d55a'),
('isl3887usb_bare', '', '6ff238179cf9618aac2b5d7a34e41450'),
('isl3890usb', '', '1c4847b33a385bc345b80697b3532dc2'),
('isl3886', '', '09f9da7ea757173c9de1a0322a1f9782'))

The firmware files are available on <http://prism54.org/firmware/>. I
don't yet have any information about their origin, copyright or
licensing status. I'm trying to find out from the administrators of that
web server.
