Subject: RE: [PATCH] net/r8169: Correct the ram code for RTL8111D(L)

Excuse me, I have some questions about the firmware patch.

1. I should convert the data into the binary files (.bin). Is it right?

2. Where should I update the firmware files? Is the path the
linux-2.6/firmeware?
    However, according to linux-2.6/firmeware/README.AddingFirmware, I
should
    update they to another repository:

	
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git

    Then, how the firmware merge with kernel-2.6? Or, where could I find the
firmware
    in the kernel-2.6 repository?
 
Best Regards,
Hayes
