There used to be release/snapshot tarballs in kernel.org before the 
debacle.
My $.02 is that we could just do it as a package with a huge option 
list for each firmware file(s) required for different drivers/devices.
I'd go for a smaller subset to begin with since there are firmware 
files for SAN controllers and other big iron stuff that probably are't 
the target for buildroot.
Regards.
