    124124==== Common firmware rules ====
    125  * For every driver there is a seperate firmware in the repository in HAIKU_TOP/data/system/data/firmware/<driver-name>.zip
    126  * Firmware archive is unzipped into /system/data/firmware/<driver-name>
     125 * For every driver there is a separate directory in the repository under HAIKU_TOP/data/system/data/firmware/<driver-name>/
     126 * This directory contains the firmware in its original bundled form (sticking to license requirements) and a file "mapping.rule" containing the rules for renaming the firmware during installation.
     127 * Firmware will reside in /system/data/firmware/<driver-name>/ once it is in place.
    127128 * Firmware file permissions must be set to read-only, as they are loaded directly into kernel space (having future multi-user feature in mind).
