Bug Description

[Impact]
Realtek 8852A wifi can not work without proper firmware.

[Fix]
Add realtek 8852a wifi firmware for driver.
Kernel driver will be in another SRU.

[Test]
Verified on hardware with wifi ap, connect with 2.4G/5G, all good.

[Where problems could occur]
It should be low risk for adding fw for specfic hardware chip.
Hirsute already got it, only SRU fw for F/G.

For Focal,
Test kernel 5.10-oem-1030 with these patches(https://patchwork.kernel<email address hidden>/).
Update firmware to 1.187.15.
the WIFI works correctly.

Ubuntu Hirsute doesn't have the patch rtw89: 8852a: update fw to v0.13.8.0 so that should be backported there to avoid losing functionality on upgrade from Groovy to Hirsute.

Ok, I don't think we want to release this before having the hirsute part resolved. Let's at least get it into -proposed.
