As a followup to a discussion on [arch-general] in the Linux 2.6.34
thread ([1] and others), I think we should do the following:

- Create a linux-firmware package from the linux-firmware.git tree.
- Make that package conflict and replace all other firmware that it
All other firmware packages contain only files that are not part of
- Remove the firmware from the kernel26 PKGBUILD, only use the
linux-firmware package instead

I'm putting a package with the according conflicts/replaces to testing.
Please comment, test it thoroughly and give feedback.
