Over the weekend I also uploaded a new package called 'bcm2303-firmware'
that's currently sitting in the Revu queue:

This has firmware for a Broadcom USB Bluetooth dongle which is requested by
the current in-kernel 'bcm203x' driver.  (Under 2.4, this was found with a
userspace firmware downloader in 'bluez-fw', now superseded).

The two files inside this would be a candidate for moving into
'linux-restricted-modules' too.  Edd Dumbill motioned that he'd support this
option for Ubuntu.
