+Driver for Western Digital WD7193, WD7197 and WD7296 SCSI cards
+The card requires firmware that can be cut out of the Windows NT driver that
+can be downloaded from WD at:
+There is no license anywhere in the file or on the page - so the firmware
+probably cannot be added to linux-firmware.
+This script downloads and extracts the firmware, creating wd719x-risc.bin and
+d719x-wcs.bin files. Put them in /lib/firmware/.
+wget http://support.wdc.com/download/archive/pciscsi.exe
