Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: New and updated firmware is needed to support the move to a 4.13 based hwe-edge kernel in xenial.

Fix: Cherry pick and backport relevant upstream commits, based primarily on the fwinfo files from the artful kernel abi.

Regression Potential: In most cases these add completely new firmware files which will not be used by older kernels in xenial. In a few cases bug fix updates for existing firmware were also included, but these are not expected to introduce regressions. In all cases the firmware files have been in use in artful for well over a month.


Add and update firmware files as necessary to support a 4.12-based kernel in the xenial linux-hwe-edge package.

Hello Seth, or anyone else affected,

Accepted linux-firmware into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware/1.157.13 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.
