Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: A 4.15-based hwe-edge kernel has been introduced into xenial. However some of the firmware files it requires are missing from xenial's linux-firmware, rendering the relevant hardware inoperable.

Fix: Add the missing firmware files.

Regression Potential: Most of these files will not be used by the existing kernels in xenial. A few may be, and while regressions are not expected it's possible that new firmware versions might introduce regressions.

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/1.157.18 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, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
