[lfs-dev] Proposal: Firmware instructions

I have noticed that we don't seem to cover firmware installation
anywhere in LFS. The trick is that some modern network cards and most
wireless ones require firmware to function. Radeon cards also require
firmware (most of them does iirc) but we cover that in BLFS. It doesn't
stop there, but I find these 3 cases to be most common ones.

It would be nice if we included some instructions about firmware in LFS.

Most of the firmware can be downloaded from kernel.org git repository:

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/

Some firmware is shipped in the kernel tree.

Thoughts?
