carl9170 firmware is Free Software but Parabola has removed it from linux-libre-firmware

This means my wireless card cannot work (even though it works fine in
Trisquel). I had to get firmware from archlinux package to fix.

here is the licence: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/carl9170fw
