    Default linux-firmware

    Our linux-firmware package in the repo is a bit outdated
    -the version in bt repo is 1.2, and the new build version is 1.35 (2010-05-25)
    -due to new hardware (mostly wireless devices) we are missing lots of firmware for our drivers to work
    -importing the linux-firmware .deb package from:
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware
    can be the easiest way to make all of wireless cards which have linux drivers work!
    -also making easier for everyone to test the beta kernel!

    there is a changelog here:
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...are/+changelog

    also it will be nice if the linux-firmware-nonfree was updated as well for the same reason
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...rmware-nonfree
