Bug Description

The rtl8192ce driver in this package supports the RTL8192CE chip, but it can't work because /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin is missing from the package, and not included anywhere else in Lucid.

Copying this file from Realtek's 0007.0809.2012 driver release appears to make the card initialise and work fine.
