Bug Description

Each release of package "linux-firmware" (latest version 1.173.8 published on 2019-07-03) rewrites the wifi firmware file /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin and this error repeats:

Jul 04 14:34:42 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_hostmail: mailbox indicates firmware halted
Jul 04 14:34:45 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_bus_rxctl: resumed on timeout
Jul 04 14:34:48 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_bus_rxctl: resumed on timeout
Jul 04 14:34:48 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_pno_clean: failed code -110
Jul 04 14:34:55 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_bus_rxctl: resumed on timeout
Jul 04 14:34:55 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_run_escan: error (-110)
Jul 04 14:34:55 ubuntu kernel: brcmfmac: brcmf_cfg80211_scan: scan error (-110)

To solve this issue, I must copy by hand the correct file brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin from:
https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin

Both packages "linux-firmware" and "linux-firmware-raspi2" contain the file brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin

Raspberry Pi 3B+
Ubuntu Server: 18.04.2 LTS (Bionic Beaver)
Architecture: arm64
Package linux-firmware-raspi2: 1.20180919-0ubuntu0.18.04.2

The same error was reproduced today (2019-07-25) when upgrading the package "linux-firmware" to version 1.173.9, as it rewrites the wifi firmware file /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin
