Subject: binary firmware in drivers/net/starfire_firmware.h
Date: Sat, 04 Oct 2008 22:56:42 +0200
Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.26-5
Severity: serious


drivers/net/starfire_firmware.h (licensed under GPLv2) is entirely composed
of binary firmware, such as:

static const u32 firmware_rx[] = {
  0x010003dc, 0x00000000,
  0x04000421, 0x00000086,

It's worth noting that the last chunk is #ifdef'ed out and not actually
used for anything.

Since this file is licensed under GPL, this could make it illegal to
redistribute it.

In either case, the presence of source-less binary code is a violation
of DFSG #2 requirement for source code availability.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Here's a patch for starfire to make it use request_firmware.  This is
compile-tested only.  The firmware files can be produced by writing out
the firmware_rx and firmware_tx arrays as 32-bit little-endian values.
However, the licence remains a problem.

FreeBSD appears to have copied the proper copyright notices into their
versions of the firmware:

"(c)2001 Adaptec, Inc. By using this software you agree that it is
licensed to you "AS IS" and that Adaptec makes no warranties,
express or implied, regarding the Software.
Any redistribution of this Software must include this disclaimer and
copyright notice."

So this ought to be OK for firmware-nonfree.
