In order to distribute any of this firmware in Ubuntu we need the
individual firmware files and an open-source compatible license from the
vendor for redistribution of the firmware files. Lacking that we are not
able to distribute the firmware with Ubuntu.
There is a version of phanfw.bin in the upstream linux-firmware
repository, which is the version we ship in Ubuntu. According to the
history this is version 4.0.590, last updated Apr 7 2013. There is no
nx3fwct.bin file there.
The best thing would still be to get this firmware updated/included in
upstream linux-firmware, but that will also require an appropriate
license for redistribution.
Changing this to wishlist since as far as I know there's nothing we can
do about it right now. If the firmware files become available with an
appropriate license, please let me know.
