| DO NOT ADD FIRMWARE TO THIS DIRECTORY.
|This directory is only here to contain firmware images extracted from old

|As we update those drivers to use request_firmware() and keep a clean
|separation between code and firmware, we put the extracted firmware
|This directory is _NOT_ for adding arbitrary new firmware images. The
|place to add those is the separate linux-firmware repository:
|That repository contains all these firmware images which have been
|extracted from older drivers, as well various new firmware images which
|we were never permitted to include in a GPL'd work, but which we _have_
|been permitted to redistribute under separate cover.
|To submit firmware to that repository, please send either a git binary
|diff or preferably a git pull request to:

| Ben Hutchings <firstname.lastname@example.org>
|Your commit should include an update to the WHENCE file clearly
