But..but.. won't that prevent installing firmware for more than one
builddeb kernel?  I.e., shouldn't the fw package name also be versioned
if you are going to do this (which it seems you are)?

But then again, I thought versioned firmware was dropped from the
official packages for good reasons.  Any reason why you couldn't add
/lib/firmware/something (where "something" is fixed and independent of
version) to the firmware.agent search path, and use that for unofficial
linux-firmware packages?

That would allow unofficial firmware packages from different kernel
versions to continue sharing their package name without conflicting with
the official packages in any way.
