In the case of alsa you have a huge firmware archive for hardware from
many vendors, with alsa telling you the whole set is GPL, and with many
text files in the alsa archive tracing vendor permissions.

So the question is: do you trust the text files as is? Do they cover all
the firmwares in the archive set? Have any of them incompatible terms?

That's questions for a lawyer, not a packager.
