add additional files which fall under the Conexant firmware license

1 The following binary firmware files are (c) Conexant, and do not fall
2 under the GPL or MPL. They are assumed to have the same license as
3 their windows client drivers, ie everyone who bought a card that came
4 with a windows driver already has a copy of and license to use the
5 necessary firmware, albeit possibly an older version. These are bundled
6 with linux-wlan-ng for convenience only, as many newer adapters
7 (eg Prism 3 w/SSF) require a firmware download in order to function at
8 all.

10 Primary (Basic hardware functionality) firmware images:

21
22 Tertiary firmware images (Firmware-based AP mode) are not bundled, as
23 that requires an explicit license from Conexant to use, with explicit
24 limitations on redistribution.

27
28 v4l-cx23418-apu.fw

33
34 Conexant grants permission to use and redistribute these firmware
35 files for use with Conexant devices, but not as a part of the Linux
36 kernel or in any other form which would require these files themselves
37 to be covered by the terms of the GNU General Public License.
38 These firmware files are distributed in the hope that they will be
39 useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty
40 of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
