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.
