I've been successfully building a set of Linux kernels on 16.04 base for some time now. When I build the 4.14 kernel to make deb packages with:
make -j24 KDEB_PKGVERSION=1.custom deb-pkg

From 4.14 the linux-firmware package is no longer created. In 4.13 and prior, there was no issue.
Has there been any change in the way kernel packages are created in Ubuntu or is this a new Linux implementation?
