Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: The redpine driver in xenial has been updated, and a corresponding firmware update is also required.

Fix: Add new firmware files.

Test case: Test with affected hw and with a kernel which has the driver update.

Regression potential: These are new files used by a single driver, so no regressions are possible outside of that driver.


Latest firmware images provided by Redpine in 1.2 production release are updated to ubuntu's linux-firmware.git

When will the Redpine RS9113 firmware available in linux-firmware for Xenial? Is anything blocking the release?

It's included in 1.157.12, which was uploaded last week but is currently sitting in the unapproved queue.

Can you please describe what sort of testing has been done? Just a bare ‘verification-done-xenial’ is not very helpful.
