Not sure how "non-fatal" that is, I wonder what happens to udev if that firmware isn't installed.  Adding it to the tracker just in case.

Comment 2 Kevin Fenzi 2010-01-28 21:38:34 UTC
It causes livecd composes to fail because it also fails to make the initramfs. 
I suspect the kernel won't boot either due to that on already installed systems. 

So, I think it's pretty fatal. ;)

Confirmed this issue is fixed when installing with dracut-004-5.fc13 (http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=153571).  Closing this issue as CLOSED RAWHIDE.
