Those symlinks are not in the main linux-firmware package upstream, why are
they needed here?

According to my experiences the brcm80211 driver (at least in the kernel of
11.4 rc1) wants to load its firmware following those symlinks. If the links are
not there, the driver gets loaded but complains about the lack of firmware and
is unable to drive the card.
