[linux-dvb] Debugging firmware loading...

Just had a frustrating time with firmware loading
on a newly upgraded Gentoo 2005.0 box running a
generic 126.96.36.199 kernel with the latest CVS
dvb-kernel. Turns out that the hotplug firmware
agent responsible for loading firmware has
changed the preferred location for firmware
images. It's no longer /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
but /lib/firmware. In fact it can be any
arbitrary path as chosen by the distribution
/etc/hotplug/firmware.agent has a variable
which defines the path to use when loading
# directory of the firmware files
Most recent distros seem to be using this, Fedora
Core 3 and Gentoo 2005.0 to name but two.
Just thought the dvb-kernel documentation might
like to incorporate this change...
