Not sure if this is safe to link (as in whether it will change over time)

"Failure while downloading"

looks like this file is no longer available

This package provides firmware blob only, the only issue here ever can be wrong filename
(Or some bug with particular version of firmware, bug happening directly on stick)

Oops, my bad (hardware). The error happens when there's a USB storage attached, regardless of kernel version. Otherwise it works OK. Probably the timeout needs to be increased? I see it's only 1000 ms, probably the machine needs more time to probe other USB devices.

Got "firmware upload timed out" on kernel 4.3.33, works fine in 4.1.15

What does the $_gitname mean in PKGBUILD?

Thanks, i have fixed it.

Given that this is firmware loaded onto the chip, and not run by the CPU, shouldn't this have an arch of 'any'?
