Deleting the old firmware is a bad idea. You've haven't modified the driver in
net or net-next to use the new firmware, and until you do, kernels won't be able
to find the firmware the driver is requesting. You should make firmware changes
addative. Add new versions of firmware, but keep the old ones (at least for a
while). Thank you for moving cxgb4 to a versioned firmware file though. I
presume there is a pending update to change the FW_FNAME definition to pending?
