For dracut this is supposed to work , though note that I haven't tested this
myself on Arch.
Booster seems to read the name of the firmware file from the kernel module ,
then use that name to find the file in the firmware directory [3,4]. It seems
as if the appendFirmwareFiles() function might need to get patched to look for
`fwPath + ".xz"` in addition to `fwPath`, though I could be totally wrong here.
