There are new binary-only firmware updates out today for both Intel and AMD Linux users.

First up for Intel Skylake CPU owners, there are new audio firmware blobs. These updated audio DSP firmware files contain fixes for key phrase detection and handling delay for system wakes.

On the red side there are updated AMDGPU firmware files. The merge doesn't say what's changed about these AMDGPU firmware blobs, but hopefully Bridgman or Deucher can comment via the forums. These are firmware updates for Carrizo, Fiji, Polaris 10, Polaris 11, Stoney, Tonga, and Topaz.
