Rodrigo, instead of removing the URL of 01.org, it will be a good idea to add the drm-firmware git repo which is Intel's repo of all firmwares. I understand users should not be encouraged to manually download the firmware. But maybe pointing out the location where we maintain all firmwares would be good.
