Update linux-firmware to latest git commit

This introduces update firmware for the major GPU types in Solus:

  • AMDGPU (Vega)
  • Intel iGPU (i915)
  • NVIDIA (lots.)

We expect this change to land before building our next kernels to ensure
a consist chain of build and that relevant update firmware blobs will be
present in the prebuilt kernel initrds.

Depends on D8480

Signed-off-by: Ikey Doherty <>

Test Plan

Install, try not to hose hardware. Will need wider testing with updated
kernels from NVIDIA and AMDGPU users.

FWIW I was working on some kernel updates locally but I gotta go out for a fair few hours.

I'll attach my current kernel patch if @DataDrake wants to continue the effort?

Also at some point those patches in git need reviewing to see if they're still relevant, given the hunk offsets I'm seeing.
Could be causing more harm than good now (specifically usb + intel)

FWIW if you want to hold on this, I might be able to continue tomorrow. UK/EU is insane right now so I can't make any promises.
