The linux-firmware ebuild is just packaging the upstream linux-firmware tree.
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git;a=summary

If you want a particular firmware included, best send a git-formatted patch to the repository owner or kernel mailing list.

I realize that historically we are just packaging the linux-firmware upstream repo, but it wouldn't hurt to cut down on the dozens of firmware ebuilds and make them one.... or we could just make this a new ebuild request and make it a separate package.

Personally, most other distros have hundreds of patches on linux-firmware to add new firmwares and distribute as one package.  I'm not saying we should or shouldn't do that, I'm saying that's the way everyone else does it.

Francisco, did you do the above? Can you link us to it or name its subject?

Thank you in advance.
