I'd suggest we just start installing *-firmware.

Well, the problem as I see it is that we are only installing a static
list of firmware packages. This list of course may not contain the
firmware blobs that the kernel modules we install require. That's
because the two pieces of information are under the control of two
different groups - we control the list of what firmware packages to
install, the kernel controls what blobs are actually required.

At the minimum, it seems like we should query the installed modules for
what firmware they require, look up what package provides that firmware,
and add it to the list of packages to install into our images. The
easier, stupider fix is to just install all firmware packages. You'll
note that we don't really control which kernel modules get installed
anyway. Stuff like "=net" ensures that.

Otherwise, we're just going to get hit by this problem again and again.

Well, you're right. We are getting the list of required firmware from the modules, and removing the rest, I forgot about that part. So we can install *firmware*, I just like explicit stuff more. Installing firmware packages from the list of required firmware may have a big performance impact, because of yum.
