No, we don't. We want to and will ship all the firmware files that are
included in the current Linux release (make install_firmware).

If the developers are not capable of ensuring that the driver and
firmware versions in the Linux releases work together, that is a bug on
their end. In this case, it seems they move code out of the radeon
driver more quickly than into the firmware files - I am not willing to
fix this screwup for them.
