You seem to be confusing the driver and firmware versions. The firmware
versions I have seen are 4.x.y. The driver versions are 1.x.y or 2.x.y.
However, so far as I know the driver version went from 1.9.3 to 2.0.0
and there was no 1.9.26..

firmware-bnx2 in stable works with the bnx2 driver in stable. Later
firmware versions probably won't. We would have to update the driver
too, and I don't know whether we can do that without a high risk of
regressions.
