Then please work upstream (with linux-kernel, and the Fedora kernel
maintainers) to pull the firmware into 'standard' packages that use
the firmware loader, so we can actually:
- provide a sane interface to our users (well, as sane as the firmware
loading interface ever is)
- provide a sane updating and maintenance interface for our developers
Maintaining this as a separate kernel is 100% the *wrong* way to do this.
