  usbduxsigma_firmware.bin: old version causes driver crash

Status in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux-firmware source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  SRU Justification

  Impact: The usbduxsigma firmware is out of date and causes the driver
  to fail. This is fixed by updating the firmware from upstream linux-

  Test Case: Using the driver with the old firmware fails. Using it with
  the new firmware does not.

  Regression potential: The firmware is only used by the one driver so
  there is no potential for regression anywhere else, and the driver
  already isn't working with the old firmware.


  The firmware of the usbduxsigma (alongside with the usbduxsigma.c) was
  updated in 2015 during a major rewrite but its binary was still the
  old one which causes the kernel driver to fail.

  I've submitted a patch to the kernel people (see below).

  However, as a quick fix could you also apply the patch to the package
  directly to have this fixed now and then we can wait until it trickles
  down from the kernel.

  I'm the maintainer of both the firmware and the drivers.

  This affects both 32 and 64 bit distros.
