pve-firmware 1.0-13 conflicts with the packages firmware-qlogic, firmware-bnx2x, and firmware-bnx2 of Debian squeeze. It would be nice if you could either make use of the standard Debian packages, or mark pve-firmware as conflicting with or replacing the Debian packages so that APT can work properly.
# dpkg -l firmware-qlogic firmware-bnx2x firmware-bnx2
