Intel NIC card firmware


I am using Intel PCIe WiFi card on a custom embedded board powered by an ultra scale SoC. I am trying to use an intel 8265NGW PCIe WiFi module.

The Module is getting successfully enumerated. I did include the required driver in the kernel

Device Drivers -> Network Device Support -> Wireless LAN 

[*] Intel Devices &

[*]Intel Wireless WiFi NextGen AGN

and I copied the required firmware files to /lib/firmware.

Still the driver says

Please let me know where does petalinux look for firmware files. I am using an external kernel source xilinx-v2017.4 as my kernel.
