  Modified files:        (Branch: RELENG_5)
  MFC rev. 1.10:
  Put the ispfw.ko module on the EFI boot partition when creating a
  bootable ISO. HP machines (like the rx2600) that (also) have isp(4)
  may have a non-standard firmware on the controller. Our isp(4) driver
  is not able to work with those and even panics. This makes installing
  FreeBSD rather impossible. By adding the ispfw.ko module, we give the
  user a chance to upload a certified firmware onto the card and so make
  it possible to either use the isp(4) successfully or otherwise avoid
  the panic.
