Doublechecked that firmware builds with gentoo-sources-4.18.16. As soon as I switch to 4.19.0 I can emerge linux-firmware, but when building kernel, I get:

Code:

Have a system build running gentoo-sources-4.19 with 3x RX 480 and 1 x 580 successfully.

Code:
$ zcat /proc/config.gz |grep CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE

Thank you, for your comment. The thing is, that after having synced the system yesterday, I only have this version available:

emerge --search linux-firmware
Code:
*  sys-kernel/linux-firmware
      Latest version available: 20181026
      Latest version installed: 20181026
      Size of files: 163'562 KiB
      Homepage:      https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git
      Description:   Linux firmware files
      License:       linux-firmware ( BSD ISC MIT no-source-code ) GPL-2 GPL-2+ freedist


ls -l /usr/portage/sys-kernel/linux-firmware/
Code:

insgesamt 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3264 30. Okt 00:39 linux-firmware-20181026.ebuild
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3240  8. Aug 21:09 linux-firmware-99999999.ebuild
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1246 30. Okt 00:39 Manifest
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  570  1. Okt 2016  metadata.xml


And this one only builds until kernel gentoo-sources-4.18.16 for me.

zcat /proc/config.gz |grep CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE
Code:
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="amdgpu/polaris10_ce.bin amdgpu/polaris10_k_smc.bin amdgpu/polaris10_mc.bin amdgpu/polaris10_me.bin amdgpu/polaris10_mec2.bin amdgpu/polaris10_mec.bin amdgpu/polaris10_pfp.bin amdgpu/polaris10_rlc.bin amdgpu/polaris10_sdma1.bin amdgpu/polaris10_sdma.bin amdgpu/polaris10_smc.bin amdgpu/polaris10_smc_sk.bin amdgpu/polaris10_uvd.bin amdgpu/polaris10_vce.bin amd-ucode/microcode_amd_fam17h.bin"
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="/lib/firmware"



I was able to boot kernel-4.19.0 but then X did not find any display thus no gui and I discovered that sddm had crashed. But I was able to start gdm and login with gnome (wayland?) session but not with X session.

When I then tried to recompile kernel, I found out that with this firmware version it would not finish successfully, and that the only ebuild version I have is 20181026. So I reverted back to kernel-4.18.16 and with this one the gpu kernel modules are successfully built, so I thought, its maybe worth a post, perhaps even filing a bug?

el/linux-firmware
Code:
     Verfügbare Versionen:   20170314 (~)20171009 (~)20171123 (~)20171206 **99999999 {savedconfig}
     Installierte Versionen: 20181026^bs(00:19:51 31.10.2018)(-savedconfig)
     Startseite:             https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git
     Beschreibung:           Linux firmware files


So it maybe only a problem with actual 20181026 version? Maybe I should search for ebuild file for older versions as I have.

Right Now I come from uniistall kernel sources 4.19.0 and deleted /usr/src/linux-4.19.0 and I am trying again.

Edit to add, that after deletion of /usr/src/linux-4.19.0 and re-emerge of gentoo-sources-4.19.0 followed by emerge of linux-firmware, everything is ok again, and kernel could compile successfully. I am not in front of the box and thus cannot test reboot immediately to check if X starts correctly.

I am wondering, if I should delete this post, as it is certainly not of much value. :oops:

I leave it to the moderator team to decide if its worth keeping it or if it should/can be deleted. In the meantime I put [solved] to its title

Sometimes simple solutions elude us the easiest :)
