Agree. Especially if we consider some steps from the comments of the work around are needed, incuding chmod +x commands.
Also, I see some folks (me included) have solutions that save the files from V146 so that it is not needed to do a full reinstallation if firmware 146 to get the files.
The concern with that is... how do we make sure those files are correct/safe?
I think Intel should provide official files off from an Intel server AND provide HASH verification mechanisms
That would be a "correct workaround."
A correct answer would be to release a 160 firmware that does not have the issue, which I'd consider a major issue.
