 2	DO NOT ADD FIRMWARE TO THIS DIRECTORY.
 3	======================================
 4
 5This directory is only here to contain firmware images extracted from old
 6device drivers which predate the common use of request_firmware().
 7
 8As we update those drivers to use request_firmware() and keep a clean
 9separation between code and firmware, we put the extracted firmware
10here.
11
12This directory is _NOT_ for adding arbitrary new firmware images. The
13place to add those is the separate linux-firmware repository:
14
15    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git
16
17That repository contains all these firmware images which have been
18extracted from older drivers, as well various new firmware images which
19we were never permitted to include in a GPL'd work, but which we _have_
20been permitted to redistribute under separate cover.
21
22To submit firmware to that repository, please send either a git binary
23diff or preferably a git pull request to:
24      David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
25
26Your commit should include an update to the WHENCE file clearly
27identifying the licence under which the firmware is available, and
28that it is redistributable. If the licence is long and involved, it's
29permitted to include it in a separate file and refer to it from the
30WHENCE file.
31
32Ideally, your commit should contain a Signed-Off-By: from someone
33authoritative on the licensing of the firmware in question (i.e. from
34within the company that owns the code).
