Bug Description

[Impact]
To support AMD Radeon Pro W6600/W6700 graphic card, we need some new firmware.

[Fix]
AMD suggests us to include below 2 commits, and to avoid conflicts I cherry pick sienna cichlid firmware from the beginning when it's been added. Impish already have both commits.

amdgpu: add initial dimgrey cavefish firmware from 21.20
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/iwlwifi/linux-firmware.git/commit/?id=87619e4114cc631efcb6868dca54d481dc467034

amdgpu: update sienna cichlid firmware from 21.20
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/iwlwifi/linux-firmware.git/commit/?id=4043da4f77f84b75a0f818ab7e83ead187ebf441

[Test]
Verified on AMD Radeon Pro W6600 graphic card.

[Where problems could occur]
This series of patches introduce dimgrey cavefish and sienna cichlid firmware. The 2 GPUs are still new and have little chance to affect old platforms, should be safe to include them.
