  Binary package hint: linux-firmware
  Take what's left of alsa-firmware and try to merge it into linux-
  firmware. This will make alsa-firmware obsolete as all firmware will be
  provided by linux-firmware instead.
  * Already in linux-firmware:
  korg1212 / korg
  maestro3 / ess
  sb16 / sb16
  wavefront / yamaha
  ymfpci / yamaha
  * The following should be OK to merge. The only questionmark is that the license say "Redistributable under GPL", but there is no source to the actual firmware.
  hdsploader / .
  mixartloader / mixart
  pcxhrloader / pcxhr
  usx2yloader / .
  vxloader / vx
  * aica / . - Seems OK to merge (BSD license), it's ARM though
  * asihpi / asihpi - Merged in ubuntu, but not upstream
  * echoaudio / ea - Why does Medibuntu's alsa-firmware delete it when I
  can't find it in linux-firmware? Needs further research
  * emu / emu - Needs second opinion / legal review - Questionable whether
  the copyright holder listed (James Courtier-Dutton
  <James at superbug.co.uk>) is actually the true copyright holder of the
+ * emi_26_62 / emagic - Already in linux-firmware but in a different
+ directory! Probably the emagic dir is wrong, according to Clemens
+ Ladish.
  * multisound / turtlebeach - this directory is empty so there is nothing
- to merge.
+ to merge. It creates symlinks though.
