Yes, lets just go with those 2 wildcard matches, that should catch all the files the driver needs without needing to add a lot of extra MODULE_FIRMWARE() entries to the module's firmware.

I completely agree with you. Actually, if you take a look you will see that most of these were submitted to linux-firmware by me :)

But this is really orthogonal to which MODULE_FIRMWARE() entries we should add.
