@Daniel -- where did those firmware files come from. We need to know the person offering them even has the right to offer them for us to download, and to put them in the official package we would need some kind of paper trail from the original owners of these files (presumably AMD).

Regards, Phill." The reply is: "As far as I can tell, the KAVERI firmware (and hardware) is not publicly available yet, so that's not a bug with the linux-firmware package. If you want to file a new bug about the warning messages, please file it against the linux (kernel) package. Until the firmware is available, I'm not really sure what the fix for that would be, other than removing/commenting out the relevant Kaveri lines in the radeon kernel code." Please find attached bug report as requested.
