Brocade firmware missing in Sysresccd 3.8.1

Kernel module for Brocade HBAs gets correctly loaded, but binary firmware is missing so /sys/class/fc_host remains empty.

Manually loading firmware files in /lib/firmware the forcing module reload (modprobe -r bfa ; modprobe bfa) works (/sys/class/fc_host gets populated).

I don't know wether Gentoo has such a package, but this is the official distribution: ... fextn=.tgz

If there's some procedure to request as an enhancement/feature I will gladly follow up.
