I noticed this firmware problem aswell with the CentOS 6.x Xen rpms,
where Linux 3.4 is used as a dom0 kernel.

The problem was actually a wrong firmware filename (?) in the upstream kernel, 
so a simple symlink fixed the problem for me:

cd /lib/firmware/bnx2 && ln -s bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1a.fw bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1b.fw
