    124124==== Common firmware rules ====
    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.
     125 * For every firmwar based driver there is
     126   * a separate directory in the repository in HAIKU_TOP/data/system/data/firmware/<driver-name>/.
     127     * This directory contains the firmware in its original bundled form (sticking to license requirements)
     128   * a <driver-name>.settings file in HAIKU_TOP/data/settings/kernel/drivers/ mapping the FreeBSD firmware name to the original firmware name.
    127129 * Firmware will reside in /system/data/firmware/<driver-name>/ once it is in place.
    128130 * Firmware file permissions must be set to read-only, as they are loaded directly into kernel space (having future multi-user feature in mind).
