dismissing issues before knowing facts.
My psychic powers not withstanding, you really shouldn't make

I was honestly under the impression you were pitching a hypothetical

As to the upstream Linux kernel having firmware, yes, it does. However,
rather than hacking it to pieces in Fedora, we'd much prefer to see such
cleanup efforts done upstream. But you knew that already, yet you're
content to continue beating this long dead horse wherever possible.
I'm really done with it now.
