  initramfs includes qle driver, but not firmware

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed
Status in linux source package in Yakkety:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The qle driver for the Qlogic FastLinQ QL45000 Series 40GbE Adapter doesn't 
find devices. This is because the driver, by default, is loaded by the 
initramfs, and the initramfs does not contain the required firmware blob. The 
root cause is that the driver does not use implement the MODULE_FIRMWARE 
macro(), which is required for initramfs-tools to find and pre-load the 
required firmware.

  [Test Case]
  Install a system with a Qlogic FastLinQ QL45000 Series 40GbE Adapter. On 
failure, dmesg will show:

  [ 5.934190] qede 0009:90:00.0: Direct firmware load for 
qed/qed_init_values_zipped- failed with error -2
  [ 5.934208] [qed_slowpath_start:741()]Failed to find fw file - 
  [ 5.934280] qede: probe of 0009:90:00.0 failed with error -2
  [ 5.934353] qede 0009:90:00.1: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
  [ 5.935115] qede 0009:90:00.1: Direct firmware load for 
qed/qed_init_values_zipped- failed with error -2
  [ 5.935139] [qed_slowpath_start:741()]Failed to find fw file - 
  [ 5.935236] qede: probe of 0009:90:00.1 failed with error -2

  [Regression Risk]
  Fix is upstream and the macro usage is well defined.
