I got tired of trying to figure out what version of the
intel firmware we needed for our wifi, and finding int
in the openbsd firmware site.

now we have a repo on git.9front.org with fimrware
will work. You can directly clone it into lib/firmware:

	% cd /lib/fimware
	% git/clone gits://git.9front.org/plan9front/firmware .

or just grab individual files from it as needed.

I think it's missing the iwm firmware files from: 
 
grep 'iwm-' /sys/src/9/port/*.c 
 
/sys/src/9/port/etheriwl.c:			fwname = "iwm-7260-17"; 
/sys/src/9/port/etheriwl.c:			fwname = "iwm-3160-17"; 
/sys/src/9/port/etheriwl.c:			fwname = "iwm-7265-17"; 
/sys/src/9/port/etheriwl.c:			fwname = "iwm-8000C-34"; 
/sys/src/9/port/etheriwl.c:			fwname = "iwm-8265-34"; 
/sys/src/9/port/etheriwl.c:			fwname = "iwm-9260-34"; 
 
I needed iwm-8265-34 to get the wifi on my ThinkPad T480s to work. (It was not in the latest OpenBSD firmware package and I needed to get it from iwm-firmware-20210512.tgz. The newest one has -36 instead of -34.)
