Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.30-6-generic

I have root volume on storage controller ISP12160 so I need to load module qla1280 and firmware qlogic/12160.bin .
With 2.6.28-9-generic everything works fine,
with 2.6.30-6-generic there is problem to find firmware. In generated initrd.img-2.6.30-6-generic there is appropriate firmware but no scripts to load it on kernel request (if I load firmware by hand, boot continues without problems).

There is also another difference 2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/scsi/qla1280.ko has firmwares compiled inside module.

udev is responsible for shipping the firmware loader in the initramfs. I think we forgot that some SCSI drivers have firmware too the last time we had this discussion ...

Actually, this needs more than the loader it needs the rules too
