Hello,

Allow me to ask you the following question:

I have laptop with: "02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7265 (rev 59)".
For this device I found firmware iwlwifi-7265-ucode-25.30.14.0.tgz.

My problem is following: This firmware was created for kernel 4.2+, but I am 
using
Centos 7 with kernels a la 3.10. Therefore I see during booting and after switch off some
problematic messages a la:
capa flags index 3 larger than supported by driverĀ  or
failed to remove key (2, ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff) from hardware ...

Wi-fi works properly, not to look on the previous messages.

My question to you: do you have in schedule to include proper firmware also for
centos 7/redhat 7?

If your kernel were newer, I would recommend running the backports drivers, but I think 3.10 is too old. That said, this code change would not fix the "failed to remove key" message as I get that on my 7260 device with kernel 4.16.0. I think you may safely ignore this one if for no other reason than it only happens when the device is being shut down.

If the "capa flags index 3" message is not causing any problems, I would ignore it as well.
