Thanks for the pointer.  Are you implying that if some firmware isn't
loaded during installation, it isn't expected to be present on the
installed system either?  If so, then it worked for me as intended.
(Actually, my Ethernet driver also tries to load some Realtek firmware,
but apparenetly works just fine without it, so I only installed it later
to reduce warnings from update-initramfs.  The graphics firmware was a
must for desktop usage, though.)
