Yes, but what I don't get is how these single images are supposed to
work with so many different controllers.  The current drivers will try
to load different files for different chips:

> 3060/3062/3562/2790   n/a        |  26
> 3090                  19        /

These are currently covered by rt2860.bin and rt3090.bin, but the new
archive only contains rt2860.bin.

These are covered by rt2870.bin, rt3070.bin and rt3071.bin.  The new
archive only contains rt2870.bin.

If you can confirm that the new images really do work with all the
controllers they are claimed to, and with the current drivers, then we
should update the package and David Woodhouse's linux-firmware
repository.  Without that, I'm hesitant to make any changes.
