Hello All!

Here is a little series to rework the firmware packages in a consistent
way (or so I think).

This moves all packages providing firmware files (and only providing
firmware files) to their own sub-menu, so that:
  - they are easier to spot
  - it is more convenient to add new ones in the future

Also, new firmware files (for DVB tunners) can be installed from the
linux-firmware package.


The following changes since commit 31ff7b5eac3883a11faf60d9af0b47bfc2d903f3:

  docs: 2012.11.1 is out (2013-01-03 22:02:10 +0100)

are available in the git repository at:
  git://gitorious.org/buildroot/buildroot.git yem-firmware

Yann E. MORIN (3):
      firmwares: add a new package category to locate all firmwares
      package/linux-firmware: reorganise config menus
      linux-firmware: add options for DVB firmware files
