    [not speaking on behalf of the project, the kernel team or the
    respective maintainers]

    Apparently and afaik you are misinformed:

    $ dpkg -L firmware-bnx2 (or [1])
    ...
    /lib/firmware/bnx2-06-4.0.5.fw
    /lib/firmware/bnx2-09-4.0.5.fw
    ...

    $ dpkg -L firmware-iwlwifi (or [2])
    ...
    /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode
    /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode
    /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode
    ...

    $ dpkg -L firmware-qlogic (or [3])
    ...
    /lib/firmware/ql2100_fw.bin
    /lib/firmware/ql2200_fw.bin
    /lib/firmware/ql2300_fw.bin
    /lib/firmware/ql2322_fw.bin
    /lib/firmware/ql2400_fw.bin
    /lib/firmware/ql2500_fw.bin
    ...

    etc. for the other firmware packages[4].
