One thing for next time, this format:

 (back-ported from iwlwifi/linux-firmware commit 90e6845190c2f32bb631f40a9d6c929eb504a82f)

is not correct. The information about a non-upstream repo should come
after the sha1, as putting it in the middle breaks regex matching for
some of our scripts. Generally it should also be the full url for the
repo, except in cases like linux-next which are very widely understood.

The commit is upstream now, so I just removed iwlwifi/linux-firmware
when applying. For eoan I picked up the commit by rebasing onto upstream
tip. Applied for bionic/cosmic/disco, thanks!
