Replace Debian firmware packages with upstream Kernel
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


Inspired by we should think about dropping the firmware-* packages from Debian Jessie as they do not ship all the latest Firmware code required by ou much newer Kernel 4.14.

e.g has version 0.43 on VyOS which lacks the iwlwifi-7260-17 driver. On the other hand, the latest master branch of has everything we need to support the latest WiFi card.

@dmbaturin @UnicronNL you are the VyOS custom Debian package guys :)
