Warning during system update

Hi,

So i was updating my system today, and during the update I got these error/warning messages..

Why is that exactly? Is it anything to worry about?

==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: aic94xx
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: wd719x
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: xhci_pci

Thanks

No.
Just warnings, no module, no firmware needed.

If you have any of that dated hardware, then yes, absolutely you should be worried.

Is your hardware 'modern?' (Is it all recognized? Does it all work?) Then you're probably fine, just like most of us. If not, then loading them is easy enough, per the Arch Wiki.

For the rest of you--you may be wrong. I've seen it before with kernel modules and so have you, if you've been 'round for a while.
