You may need to have some non-free firmware available for the card.

Yes, always.

Emdebian uses a version suffix (em1 for Grip, Crush used to use em1,
em2, em3 and so on for rebuilds) and therefore an Emdebian version is
always treated as newer than the equivalent (and binary compatible)
Debian version, until the next Debian version arrives. There is a gap
(up to 24hrs normally) where it would be possible to install the newest
of new packages from Debian, if you also added a Debian apt source.
