While building initramfs, I have encountered this warning. Is this safe to ignore? Why is this warning gererated?

me@linux:~/linux$ sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-4.6.0+ 4.6.0+

The new Linux kernel now supports a later version of GUC, an Intel graphics firmware blob.

This is available at https://01.org/linuxgraphics/intel-linux-graphics-firmwares

Download, extract and run install.sh, then reboot your machine to use it.
