I don't think that the license allows us to redistrubte the firmware in
our linux-firmware package. The section which seems to be applicable
specifies that the firmware can be distributed "solely as embedded in or
for execution on an Intel-based product, and if to an end user, pursuant
to a license agreement with terms and conditions at least as restrictive
as those contained in the Intel End User Software License Agreement in
Appendix A hereto." The end-user license specifically forbids
redistribution, which I believe makes the firmware unacceptable for
