Requested by: Denny Beyer (lumnis)

We should provide a firmware package for all drivers requiring one, eg.
many tv cards or scanners etc.
Even better would be if this package would be automatically installed
(or the user will be prompted to install) if a device has been plugged
in for the first time.
Firmware files are relatively small compared to harddisk size, so one
package for all tv cards, one for scanners etc. should do.
