Update linux-firmware in bionic for 5.3 hwe kernel

Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: The transition of the hwe kernel in bionic from 5.0 to 5.3 necessitates addition of new firmware files which are required by drivers in 5.3. Some of these files will also be needed in the installer.

Fix: Add the missing files, and update the udebs as required.

Test Case: Confirm that the new files are included in the updated packages.

Regression Potential: These are new files which are not used by the current kernels in bionic, so no regressions are expected.

Hello Seth, or anyone else affected,

Accepted linux-firmware into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware/1.173.13 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-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. 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 for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

Confirmed that the new firmware files are present and that file contents match what is expected in both the binary linux-firmware package and the nic-firmware udeb.
