User-agent: Gnus/5.110006 (No Gnus v0.6) Emacs/22.0.90 (gnu/linux)

I plugged in the following hardware:

0000:07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Marvell
W8300 802.11 Adapter (rev 07)

...and noted the following in dmesg:

[17200527.868000] mrv8k: Firmware 'mrv8k-b.fw' not available or load

Should I write a patch to remove this driver from the kernel package? If
it demands firmware I can't see what good it does to package it. Just
