    Adding /lib/firmware directory to add support for those
    requiring it.
    Using
    git clone http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git
    to get the latest files. Earlier test used Fedora17 /lib/firmware directory.
    Probable some files that would not be necessary, but don't know.
    Do remove the .git directory from the download.
    This required increasing the size of the ramdisk from 64M to 128M, and the number
    of inodes in the makecdrm script.

    kernel 3.6.6 now default kernel
    The 2012/11/05 kernels have a firmware option turned off to not include
    in kernel firmware to hopefully resolve an issue with the new /lib/firmware
    CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD=y

    CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL is not set

    CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE=""

    CONFIG_HOSTAP_FIRMWARE is not set

    CONFIG_FIRMWARE_MEMMAP=y

    CONFIG_GOOGLE_FIRMWARE is not set

    kernel 3.7-rc5 2012/11/11 (bz3x7.rc5)
    Remove the /lib/firmware since it didn't work, and could not get any real
    support on how to make it work from kernel list.
    So, it does the the bnx2x firmware that was the exact issue added manually
    to the kernel build rather than having all firmware loaded via /lib/firmware.
    It appears this was an ideal, but it seems that it has been Orphaned.

    kernel 3.6.7 now default kernel
    Now have to copy previous .config files, and modify firmware/Makefile
    and add additional firmware file to build kernels.
    If anyone has other firmware that needs to be added, please let me know.
    Added a firmware display check to rcS file to display if firmware is found.
    It skips if no firmware lines, but displays if successful or unsuccessful firmware
    is found in dmesg output.
    firmout=dmesg | grep -i firmware
    if [ -n "$firmout" ] ; then
    echo -e "Firmware lines from dmesg\nIf any errors, Please contact mikes@kuentos.guam.net\n\n$firmout" >/tmp/firmout
    dialog --timeout 30 --textbox /tmp/firmout 0 0 2>/dev/null
