According to the research I've done, and the info at rt2x00 is 100% free 
software and is still included in DeltaH (try modinfo rt2400pci).

On the other hand, only ath5k (included in linux 2.6.25, see and prism54 (with FreeMAC) are replacing the blobs 
with free software. From "[...] Not 
supported, and it would be very hard to do so: TI, Intel, Prism GT"

But actually, it is about the amount of work and time required to verify each 
file in drivers that I think are going to remain the same in the life cycle of 
Hardy (I may be wrong); so assuming the blobs gets replaced, I don't know it 
will be backported to DeltaH.

Anyway, if it isn't acceptable in the KFV, I'm going to verify each file, just 
it will take more time.
