Verifying update compatibility and combining data:
Incompatible interfaces:
  SREC: role=Actor    variant=1 range=4-4 iface=Primary Firmware-Driver
  card: role=Supplier variant=1 range=1-3 iface=Primary Firmware-Driver
Incompatible updata data.

What is incompatible ? Is it the range (European vs. American ??) or the
role (what is it btw ?)

Thanks for your help.
