Description

I looked into why NFC on I9300 required libpn544_fw.so in Replicant but not in CyanogenMod. I found this commit:

https://www.gitorious.org/replicant/external_libnfc-nxp/commit/85af7251179c3cf53c785e9a055942d3ab6462c1

It changes a soft-fail to a hard-fail when the file is missing. Reverting this makes everything work for me. Why was the patch added?

For background and debug messages see http://blog.josefsson.org/2014/08/05/replicant-4-2-0002-and-nfc-on-i9300/

If it is needed on some other platform, please consider making it soft-fail for I9300 devices.
