I agree. I already have a libertas-fwcutter.c program in the SVN project 
at This program (similar to the bcm43xx-fwcutter) can 
select a firmware from a binary driver (e.g. binary-only driver), check 
the MD5 and extract it.

Maybe I add code there so that the fwcutter can use the source *.h files 
to create the binary, loadable image. That would be nice because the 
current firmware is from a binary 5.0.11 driver, and the firmware in 
the GPL driver is 5.0.16.
