Thinking about how it was done, I'd say you could do it:

 * Make this to split the binaries but without renaming it

 * Add a new recipe (let's say wandboard-wifi-support) which rdepends
on the binary package and installs the .txt file for nvram as well.

So we avoid to make linux-firmware machine specific. We cannot have
more than one package with same contents in filesystem (without being
different recipe name) so we'd need to complicate it a lot, using the
extra recipe makes it easy.
