Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: Recent updates to linux-firmware means that there are new and updated firmware files relevant to the 5.0 hwe kernel from disco. Adding these files to give a better install experience for the 18.04.3 release.

Fix: Add the new firmware files to the nic-firmware udeb.

Test Case: Confirm that the new files are present in the nic-firmware udeb.

Regression Potential: New firmware versions could contain regressions. These versions have already been released into bionic with no reported regressions though, and are known to fix actual problems, so the benefit seems to outweigh the potential risk.
