After further experimenting, I've found that you actually only need 2 files
under /lib/firmware/mrvl for AP mode, those are sd8688_ap.bin and
helper_sd.bin. As far as I can tell, these two files are not currently
included in firmware-nonfree (or firmware-libertas).

These files are distributed by GlobalScale, within the standard Dreamplug
file system, which is available here:

The firmware blobs that are included in Debian are under this (non-free)

However I am not aware if Marvell has ever released these 2 files with a
license. So a next step going forward may be to approach Marvell and see if
they would be willing to release them using the same license.
