Please look at this page:
https://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Development:_How_to_submit_patches#Firmware_submission

The information here can also be useful:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/readme/firmware-README.AddingFirmware

In summary, you need to provide redistribution rights for the
firmware blob. You can either submit it to me or directly to
linux-firmware. In the latter, please c/c me on such patch.

Thanks!
Mauro
