I could get the file from

I just found out about these snapshots by looking at the AUR (they 
actually split it into wireless-regdb and crda, but then there is no way 
to verify the regulatory.bin file. As the regulatory DB won't change too 
often, we can simply release a new crda package every time).

I was thinking, maybe we should verify the file again at install time 
and throw a warning if it doesn't check out.
