New firmware released http://askubuntu.com/a/832528, needed to avoid this kind of errors in kernel 4.8.

I installed these and I am still missing some firmware:

W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/icl_dmc_ver1_07.bin for module i915
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/tgl_dmc_ver2_04.bin for module i915
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/bxt_huc_ver01_8_2893.bin for module i915

Any idea what provides these?

Nevermind and downloaded them from Linux from scratch and manually placed them in /lib/firmware/ the error messages went away.
