amdgpu error on startup

I've loaded the 4.4.2.2 linux kernel and compiled it with the amdgpu driver as modular.

 

On startup I get the error "*ERROR* Failed to load firmware "amdgpu/fiji_smc.bin"

 

I did a search within the kernel source directory before and after I compiled it and I could find no trace of not just the bin file I got the error on, but any bin file.

 

after compiling, I did make firmware_install and make modules_install in addition to all the normal kernel stuff.  Any ideas?

Is it possible I need to install something to make amdgpu in addition to just the kernel module?  I imagine the firmware is pretty important...not sure where it's supposed to come from though.
