I have sent an email to the maintainer of bnx2x and got a reply, basically saying it should work if the files are in the /lib/firmware directory. I'm thinking there is some step I have missing.
The is a CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE option, but it is currently set to ="", don't know if I would have to add all the firmware, with is about 40M?
Then there is a CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR, but it only shows if you put something in the CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE and then is set to firmware.
Also, have seen some pages that say problem might be that location is not loaded, but I see it load the kernel, and then ramdisk, and then it goes thru the probing?
I am hoping it will be a simple setting or process in the kernel build to fully resolve the issue, but still looking for answer.
Ok, thanks for the heads up. I'll keep waiting for a solution.
