    Adding /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent is enough for request_firmware() to
    work. I currently include the 2.4 backport of request_firmware() with
    it.

    Once a more recent hotplug gets into Debian sid (currently it is
    0.0.20030117-7) I'll change it and use hotplug.d.

    Have a nice day
