I'm uncertain I understand why do you want it, or maybe what are you
trying to do at all.

And what use would wanxlfw.S (the assembly source) have if the option is
removed?

Who's going to make it happen?
The last time I checked (several years ago), wanXL worked. Who's going
to test it after the change?

I assume linux-firmware could include fw source and there would be means
to build the binary.

Just to be sure: the wanXL firmware has exactly nothing to do with FW
loader, nothing depends on it (nor the other way around), it's just
(with the rest of the wanXL code) an old piece of a driver for an old
card.

The question is, what do we gain by messing with it?
