A separate firmware is needed for Broadcom 43430 revision 2. This

That is bad naming. There already is a 43436 USB device.

id 43430, so requested firmware file name is
'brcmfmac43430b0-sdio.bin' in line with other 43430 revisions.

As always there is the question about who will be publishing this particular firmware file to linux-firmware.
