Add firmware for driver carl9170

Feature state

Description

Please add firmware for the driver carl9170. This driver, which adds support for Atheros USB AR9170 devices, is included in the kernel since version 3.0, yet the firmware has not been included for some reasons.
Since the Atheros AR9170 chip is used in some very popular products such as the FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N, including this GPLv2 firmware would be to the benefit of a lot of people, I think.
