Bug#493925: hmhm results with Ben's patch for mga drm firmware loading and G550


thanks, Ben, for looking into firmwares.
On my computer (using a G550), I'm seeing
[   62.796953] [drm] Initialized card for AGP DMA.
[   62.859094] firmware: requesting matrox/g400_warp.fw
[   63.032671] [drm:mga_warp_install_microcode] *ERROR* mga: Invalid
microcode "matrox/g400_warp.fw"
[   63.032671] [drm:mga_do_init_dma] *ERROR* failed to install WARP
ucode!: -22

instead of
[   67.385716] [drm] Initialized card for AGP DMA.

in dmesg when X starts with Ben's patch.
This may or may not be desirable: the mga X server fails to decently set
up the graphics modes either way (800x600/60 works, 1024x786/60 does but
flickers, for other resolutions, the display claims to receive Vertical
Refresh rates of <40Hz), so maybe the old thing just failed silently,
but all of this seems unchanged by the patch.

Kind regards
