    SubjectRe: releasing driver to kernel in source+binary format
    > Well, Qlogic also has their firmware released in binary format.

    Firmware that runs on the processor in the card is somewhat of a different
    item. If its just a binary firmware image to load into the card and that
    is run by the card I dont think its an issue.

    If its code run on the host processor then there is an issue.

    A good rule of thumb test for that is "could you write a seperate program
    that loaded the firmware and wasnt part of the kernel".
