Thank you for telling me about the notice.txt issue. No, I wasn't aware
of that happening.

My reason for creating the patches is that OpenWrt (www.openwrt.org)
is moving forward with the next 22.xx release. OpenWrt pulls firmware
and boarddata mostly from linux-firmware.git - so having those
up-to-date in time for the upcoming release is all around a "good thing".

(OpenWrt uses the monthly linux-firmware.git releases, so there's an
extra delay to account for.)

The current situation is: OpenWrt has those board files (as ~40 separate
files) all lined up in:
Once the board-2.bin in linux-firmware.git is updated and a new release is
made, those files can simply be deleted.)
