FreeBSD appears to have copied the proper copyright notices into their
versions of the firmware:
http://fxr.watson.org/fxr/source/dev/sf/starfire_rx.h
http://fxr.watson.org/fxr/source/dev/sf/starfire_tx.h

"(c)2001 Adaptec, Inc. By using this software you agree that it is

express or implied, regarding the Software.

So this ought to be OK for firmware-nonfree.
