Sorry, I am not familiar with how to upstream firmware.
Do you mean we need to upstream vpu firmware first before merge encoder
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/README, it mentions that
"To submit firmware to this repository, please send either a git binary
diff or preferably a git pull request to: linux-firmware at kernel.org and
also cc: to related mailing lists."
How we made a git pull request to linux-firmware at kernel.org?
How we find out related mailing lists?
