AFAICS, this point is moot: You are usually allowed to redistribute said firmware and use it on the device it is shipped for, no Linux restriction per se. Sure, in the ATMEL case it might be "firmware for use with the driver for Linux 2.6", but it is not restricted to it.
What is funny is that by current FSF standards, no GNU code could ever have been written...
