I would like to quote wireless.wiki.kernel.org:
The ath10k firmware images are available from linux-firmware.git which all common Linux distributions should install by default. Latest firmware images can be downloaded from ath10k-firmware.git from which they get eventually pushed to linux-firmware.git.
Last time I checked git.kernel.org, I found the commit happened last May 3, 2016 pushing the new firmware files from a Qualcomm developer to the kernel.
My questions are:
- How and when will the firmware files arrive to Debian? firmware-atheros page in sid right now doesn't contain the QCA9377 firmware files.
- Is there any change the files will be received in stable (jessie)?
If you want the background of my problem, you can check my thread.
