Well, everything is currently in extras that you would need to test. The
last .noarch.rpm for firmware-addon-dell, plus the most recent arch-rpm. 

If you could try this out, and let me know what is going on, I would
appreciate it.

# yum install firmware-addon-dell.noarch
    -> installs 1.2.6-1.fc6.noarch.rpm
# yum upgrade
    -> does not update to (available) 1.2.10-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm

[michael_e_brown localhost ~]$ sudo yum -y install
firmware-addon-dell.noarch
