Or (less effective but sometimes possible if in a hurry): Convince
distributions to accept patches, even if upstream rejects it (or
temporarily while upstream procedures might be slow).
For Debian, the package this would probably land in would be
alsa-firmware-loaders (if I understand it correctly), and the people to
contact about it are reachabel on this email address:
pkg-alsa-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org
Sometimes it might even ease upstream adoption if first working with
distributions on shaping/polishing patches.
