can VIA not release an binary only firmware for the various chipsets 
(dir /lib/firmware) like other drivers for mpeg support to load with 
opensource drivers? VIA releases binary drivers for ubuntu, suse, 
windows so its cannot be a license problem to release an binary only 
firmware that supports by glibc, uClibc and so on... have anyone contact 
to VIA developers?
