Subject: mt7615: Fail to load firmware on AZWAVE-CB434NF module

Hi Sean, Ryder,
    We have an ASUS laptop X532EQ with the wifi module AZWAVE-CB434NF
which fails to bring up the wifi interface on kernel 5.9.0-rc1. The
dmesg shows the firmware load error.

[   25.630850] mt7615e 0000:2d:00.0: Message -4294967280 (seq 1) timeout
[   25.630851] mt7615e 0000:2d:00.0: Failed to get patch semaphore
[   25.630853] mt7615e 0000:2d:00.0: mediatek/mt7663pr2h.bin not
found, switching to mediatek/mt7663pr2h_rebb.bin

[   46.111179] mt7615e 0000:2d:00.0: failed to load mediatek/mt7663pr2h_rebb.bin

The lspci information for the device shows as follows
0000:2d:00.0 Network controller [0280]: MEDIATEK Corp. Device [14c3:7663]

        Kernel driver in use: mt7615e
        Kernel modules: mt7615e

I also tried the latest linux-firmware with the most up to date
mediatek firmware
But still get the same error.

Any suggestions on what I can do here?
