Re: [alpine-devel] Splitting up linux-firmware?

It should be possible to detect which firmwares the kernel attempts to
load and automatically download only the ones you need. IMO this would
be a better approach. Couple of issues:

- How would this interact with udev, if present
- Needs to be possible to download some firmware offline
- Should include all firmware on the ISO
- Should detect and pre-install relevant firmware during alpine-setup
