Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: The linux-hwe-edge kernel will soon be based on the 4.10 zesty kernel, which requires new/updated firmware files.

Fix: Backport relevant commits from upstream linux-firmware.

Regression Potential: In most cases these are new files which will not be used by older kernels, so no regression is possible there. In a few cases there are updates to existing firmware files, and while regressions are not expected they are possible.


linux-hwe-edge in xenial is in the process of being updated to be based on the 4.10 zesty kernel. Add/update firmware files for this kernel.
