  iwlwifi: update firmware for 7260 / 3160 devices

  Wireless 7260 3.13+ kernel -> iwlwifi-7260-ucode-
  Wireless 3160 3.13+ kernel -> iwlwifi-3160-ucode-

  Quote from Emmanuel: "OSVs can safely have both firmware files installed
  regardless of the kernel version. Kernel 3.10 won’t load but
  only. Kernel 3.13 will try to load and if it is not there, it will
  try to load So nothing bad will happen if OSVs have both firmware
  installed. Just a bit of a waste - but nothing worse than that."
