Hitting the linux-firmware Git tree are updates to the firmware/microcode binary-only images for the graphics cards supported by the Radeon and AMDGPU DRM drivers.

There are the updated Radeon microcode images as well as the AMDGPU microcode images.

Offhand I haven't been able to find what's changed with these firmware blobs with the commit messages just mentioning their internal Git revision ID. Separately, new to the firmware tree is now all the firmware blobs for the open-source AMD Polaris driver support for their next-generation GPUs.
