[Bug 1497481] Re: lts-vivid kernel has IWL8000_UCODE_API_MAX=12, but only iwlwifi-8000C-13.ucode shipped
To my knowledge Intel never publicly released a -12 ucode file for this
hardware. The first version to appear in upstream linux-firmware was

lts-vivid kernel has IWL8000_UCODE_API_MAX=12, but only iwlwifi-
Status in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu:
Intel 8260 WiFi cards currently aren't usable on 14.04.3 (with lts-
vivid HWE, 3.19 kernel).
The problem is that in the kernel, iwl-8000.c defines an
IWL8000_UCODE_API_MAX of 12:
#define IWL8000_UCODE_API_MAX 12
But /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-8000C-13.ucode is the only 8000 series
firmware currently shipped in linux-firmware.
So either iwlwifi-8000C-12.ucode needs to be added to linux-firmware,
or IWL8000_UCODE_API_MAX needs to be bumped to 13 in the kernel
(possibly with other changes in the iwl-8000 driver needed to actually
make it work with firmware API 13).
