That would be a reasonable change. How is it done in drivers where the firmware has always been known to be non-GPL but redistributable? tg3 might be a special case due to its copyright change.

The firmware hasn't always been known to be non-GPL. It was distributed for years under the GPL, so it *is* GPL, but they are violating the GPL by not shipping the source code.

Have you even looked at tg3.c or it's history?
