Whilst I realise this is for a staging driver... On 2010/3/4 the firmware
for the rt2860 driver (amongst others) was removed as part of a patch
to get the driver to use request_firmware(). See:;a=commit;h=c22202faade08b6b45f14fd86bfb57f79d73464c

The firmware is in the linux-firmware.git repository and has been for a
while (at least I think that's the right firmware):;a=history;f=rt2860.bin;h=778a771716aff389c79fec3b245ed00beba23a67;hb=HEAD

Is there any chance of this making it into so that the driver
works again as it once did?
