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.
