I think it's fine for there to be new firmwares with corresponding new
configs, and that it's fine for those to have some minimum kernel
version requirement (though desirable to avoid it).  The firmwares could
be enabling completely new or different features, that's one of the
advantages of making the firmwares replaceable, and it's reasonable for
that to result in config changes.  What's not fine is for a new kernel
to require that you change anything about the firmware and config setup
on your system.
