Merge tag 'firmware_removal-4.14-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core
Pull firmware removal from Greg KH: "Many many years ago (at the kernel summit in Boston), we all came to the agreement that the firmware/ tree should be dropped from the kernel, and everyone use the linux-firmware package instead. For some minor reason, David Woodhouse didn't send the pull request at that point in time, and everyone forgot about this. The topic came up in the hallway track at the Plumbers conference this week, so here's a single patch that drops the whole firmware tree. The last firmware update was back in 2013, and all distros have been using linux-firmware instead since at least that year, if not before. The only commits to that directory since 2013 was some kbuild fixups for various build tool issues. So lets finally drop this, we don't need to lug them around in the kernel source tree anymore, especially as no one wants or uses them. This has passed build testing with 0-day, I don't think it made it into linux-next this week, but I figured it was good to get in before 4.14-rc1 was out" * tag 'firmware_removal-4.14-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core: firmware: delete in-kernel firmware
