Personally I use DISTRO_EXTRA_RDEPENDS += in my local.conf for local
changes like that.

Also I replaced the WiFi card with an Intel Wireless-N 135, and I got a FW
error using it as well. In this case it called out:
That was probably a good move, I've not had good experience with
realtek hardware.

lwlagn 0000:02:00.0: request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-105-5-ucode' failed

So if could just be I don't know how to force the firmware files to get
included or the file does not exist in Yocto.
That's packaged in linux-firmware (in oe-core master at least, it
appears the Denzil needs upgrading here), so adding
DISTRO_EXTRA_RDEPENDS += "linux-firmware" will add it to all of your
future images.
the firmware I need must not be in the Denzil for Cedartrail BSP. It built fine with the DISTRO_EXTRA_RDEPENDS added, but both the Intel and Realtek cards can't load the firmware.
