Firmware versions for Intel Wireless 6005/6205

There's an error message that's bugging me at every boot:

[    5.178355] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: firmware: agent aborted loading iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode (not found?)

Indeed, it's not installed; firmware-iwlwifi in testing/unstable has an
older version, and the driver does fall back to that:

[    5.183453] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: firmware: agent loaded iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode into memory
[    5.183459] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: loaded firmware version build 42301

We do have the newer version in experimental:

  * iwlwifi: Add Intel Wireless 6005/6205 firmware version (ABI 6)
    (Closes: #697473)
    - Add support for WoWLAN and P2P

This doesn't seem to be that important, and I've not noticed any
problems with the current firmware version.

The error message is really my fault for fiddling with the firmware
error logging; the driver would otherwise be quiet about this.  Maybe
there should be a way for those drivers with a fallback to suppress
firmware loading error messages.

More importantly, will the installer complain about this unavailable
firmware file (as in #689416)?
