     Bluetooth USB devices

     ath3kfw -d	device_name -f firmware_path
     ath3kfw -h

DESCRIPTION
     The ath3kfw utility downloads the specified firmware file to the speci-
     fied ugen(4) device.

     This utility will only work with Atheros AR3011 and AR3012	chip based
     Bluetooth USB devices.  The identification	is currently based on USB ven-

     (USB_VENDOR_ATHEROS2) and the product ID should be	one of the supported
     devices.

     The ath3kfw utility will query the	device to determine which firmware im-
     age and board configuration to load in at runtime.
