Miss Laura Abbott, comment?
Comment 2 Laura Abbott 2015-11-24 11:47:22 EST
This is intentional. We currently have to work around a limitation in patch which is triggered by the deletion of some old binary blobs in the current patch set. Modifying the patch before uploading is the only option.

Have you communicated with the upstream folks apropos this problem?
Comment 4 poma 2016-01-07 21:01:50 EST
I looked at what's up with this.

Starting with
Staging: Add support for Flarion OFDM usb and pcmcia devices

and ending with
staging: ft1000: remove obsolete driver

So this is no more with the mainline 4.4

However, why the firmwares in the first place are included in the kernel source?

Is not this the right place for inclusion,

And this,
why the application of the upstream patch works manually, but breaks within spec?
