src/share/man/man4: Makefile ubt.4
src/sys/dev/usb: FILES files.usb ubt.c
The ubtbcmfw(4) driver fails to compile, as noted by PR kern/34219.
While it can be made to compile, the paradigm is not quite right because
it attempts to contact the filesystem during autoconfig which sometimes
causes a panic. Even if that was fixed, there is another potential problem
in that the driver tries/sleeps/tries/sleeps and the sleep could
theoretically sleep past the rc.d/btconfig stage and the controller
would remain unconfigured.
So, I have prepared a different method for loading the firmware to
Broadcom BCM2033 chip based devices. A package 'sysutils/bcmfw' will load
the firmware files via a ugen(4) device interface.
This update removes the ubtbcmfw(4) driver and adds a table to the ubt(4)
driver so that it will not attach to Broadcom BCM2033 based devices before
the firmware was loaded.
This fixes kern/34219
