Bug Description

The current linux-firmware package for Precise and above contains non-free firmware in a package meant to contain free firmware. Recently, the htc_7010.fw and htc_9721.fw firmwares were updated by Atheros and re-released under a free software license. More information at https://www.fsf.org/news/ryf-ce.rtification-thinkpenguin-usb-with-atheros-chip.

Recent firmware files can be obtained from http://jxself.org/ath9k-htc/version-1.3.2/ or from the source at https://github.com/qca/open-ath9k-htc-firmware

Please consider updating these two firmware files in a package update for supported Ubuntu versions when possible.
