Hi Vadym

I just wanted to ensure you actually were going to send the
firmware. For the Marvell 10G PHYs, you need to signed an NDA with
Marvell to get the firmware, and you probably cannot distribute
it. Marvell seems to have no interest in making the firmware
available. So we NACKed support for loading the firmware a runtime.

If you have all the legal mumbo jumbo in place to make the firmware
available, great. You can post it for merging to linux-firmware now.
