The iwlwifi driver currently supports firmware API versions 4-6 for
these devices. It will request the file for the latest supported
version and then fall back to earlier versions. However, the latest
version that has actually been released is 4, so we expect the requests
for versions 6 and then 5 to fail.
I assume the installer reports any failed request, and it is probably
not easy to detect that this failure is harmless. Therefore I've
committed a patch to the driver which we can carry until this is sorted
