  1. Bug#489758: firmware-bnx2: bnx2 module fails to load bnx2 firmware file when the root FS is encrypted

    Package: firmware-bnx2
    Version: 0.11~bpo40+1
    Severity: important


    When the root filesystem is encrypted via LUKS, the init scripts wait for the passphrase, and at that time, the root filesystem is not available. The
    bnx2 module tries to load the firmware from the disk and fails after a long time. The module loading for any devices that may need firmware files
    from disk should be stalled until the passphrase is given. Alternatively, the firmware files could be added to the ramdisk.
