Description

Currently qlc(7d) is using the Sun-provided firmware under a proprietary license. FreeBSD has negotiated the release of firmware under a BSD license for their isp(4) driver, and this firmware should be imported into Illumos.

<http://svn.freebsd.org/viewvc/base/head/sys/dev/ispfw/>

The new firmware will need to be tested, particularly to make sure Sun-branded cards still work correctly.
