[New: openFATE 313473] Add firmware for driver carl9170
Feature added by: Christian Spaan (Gyges88)

Feature #313473, revision 1
Title: Add firmware for driver carl9170

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Christian Spaan (gyges88)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Please add firmware for the driver carl9170. This driver, which adds support
for Atheros USB AR9170 devices, is included in the kernel since version 3.0,
yet the firmware has not been included for some reasons. Since the Atheros
AR9170 chip is used in some very popular products such as the FRITZ!WLAN USB
Stick N, including this GPLv2 firmware would be to the benefit of a lot of
people, I think. http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/carl9170
