Details

After updating to the latest linux-firmware (20210208.b79d239-1), my AX210 wifi card no longer shows up.
Downgrading to 20210208.b79d239-1 makes it work again.

Logs after a modprobe of iwlwifi:

Please check with linux-firmware-20210315.3568f96-3 in testing - firmware has been updated

No joy - still the same issue and error output (as reporter and Coelacanthus) on linux-firmware-20210315.3568f96-3.
Comment by Térence Clastres (Terence) - Tuesday, 27 April 2021, 13:53 GMT
The loaded firmware version with 20210315.3568f96-3 is still the same after a reboot (59.601f3a66.0 ty-a0-gf-a0-59.ucode).

Has the firmware been updated but not the version or does it indicate the new firmware isn't used?

linux-firmware-20210315.3568f96-3 update the Bluetooth firmware for the AX210 and AX201.
ty-a0-gf-a0-59.ucode is the WiFi firmware.
Comment by Térence Clastres (Terence) - Tuesday, 27 April 2021, 14:20 GMT
Ah right so that's why it doesn't fix it.

Another simple workaround is to remove/rename /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm file.
Apparently currently used firmware is not compatible with this PNVM:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/777324#c6

I tried both downgrading and renaming the offending file above. Both worked, but the file listed above is only present in the newest firmware. Just a heads up for those that prefer not to downgrade.

My AX210 card now works without workarounds on kernel 5.12.1-2 using the latest linux-firmware (20210426.r1905.fa0efef-1).

Note I previously removed /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm (which now works and is required for 5.12) so just reinstalled linux-firmware and everything worked as expected on reboot.

Yup it's working now!
