afaik, the only change between firmware v2.4 and v3.0 is the
way the firmware is stored on disk.
boot firmware, microcode and main firmware are stored in the
same file, so you have only three files, one for each operating
mode.  this simplify the driver too because you have only one
call to firmware_get() instead of three.

| This forces everyone to update their firmware to rev 3.0.  It's not hard
