    Pull firmware removal from Greg KH:
     "Many many years ago (at the kernel summit in Boston), we all came to
      the agreement that the firmware/ tree should be dropped from the
      kernel, and everyone use the linux-firmware package instead. For some
      minor reason, David Woodhouse didn't send the pull request at that
      point in time, and everyone forgot about this.
    
      The topic came up in the hallway track at the Plumbers conference this
      week, so here's a single patch that drops the whole firmware tree. The
      last firmware update was back in 2013, and all distros have been using
      linux-firmware instead since at least that year, if not before. The
      only commits to that directory since 2013 was some kbuild fixups for
      various build tool issues.
    
      So lets finally drop this, we don't need to lug them around in the
      kernel source tree anymore, especially as no one wants or uses them.
    
      This has passed build testing with 0-day, I don't think it made it
      into linux-next this week, but I figured it was good to get in before
      4.14-rc1 was out"
