I don't include it in the driver. It's in a module of it's own. In
production these modules will come from ports and should be installed
in /boot/modules - not problem whatsoever. As far as I read the license it
might even be possible to have it on installation CDs. I am not a lawyer and
will thus leave that for others to discuss. As far as this tarball is
concerned. I have the LICENSE in the same location as the firmware so I do
what it asks for. Please tell me if I'm mistaken.
