Please go ahead. I wanted to do it in this or next week anyway :)
But grab the very latest alsa-firmware from git tree. There was an
update of asihpi firmwares.
We'll likely keep alsa-firmware as the "upstream", since it also
provides the file installation for 2.2 / 2.4 kernels. But, once
when files are merged to linux-firmware, we'll eventually forward any
changes in future to linux-firmware tree to sync.
