Yes, and that's why I have mentioned of_platform.h above.

I didn't get why you need this in the first place.

Elaborate in the comment.

The comment was about clarification of what is done at this label.

And that's my point. Provide data structures for all responses you are
taking care of.
It will be way better documentation and understanding of this IPC.

How do you know the type of the reply? Can't you provide a data
structure which will have necessary fields to recognize this?

Why to bother with snprintf()? hex_asc[] would be sufficient. But my
point that the code is fragile. If it ever gets 15, you will get 1.

FW build info is definitely good to have, but don't you have other
means to retrieve baud rate?
