using randomly chosen firmwares from a github repo is no real
alternative. the linux-firmware files seem to geed enough for most mayor
distros. the htt/wmi abi can change between drivers/firmware and newer
FW with older drivers can cause all sorts of weird issues like the DFS
false positive one. the aim of this series is to get much closer to
upstream in regards to wireless allowing us to work closer with upstream.
