All PS8640 devices should already ship with working firmware.
The firmware update procedure is only used in the unlikely event where
one wants to update the bridge to a different firmware provided by
Parade.

Why must the lack of firmware really block landing this driver?

If this is really so, can we just land the functional part of the
driver first, and add the firmware update in a follow-up patch.
