Debian's kernel is patched to make logging of firmware loading and
failure consistent.  I obviously need to make some exceptions to this.

(In fact, to get that change upstream I think that the default needs to
remain quiet and I should add functions that provide standard logging of
success/failure.  Then I would change over most but not all drivers to
use the latter.)
