Goal

 As per the Support Matrix for Oracle Hardware Management Pack, OHMP is not supported on the OPL platforms.

However, since the F20 (Aura 1.0) cards are supported on M4000/M5000/M8000/M9000, OHMP 2.2.3b has introduced the capability to use fwupdate to update the F20 controller/FMODs firmware when installed on an OPL platform.

Note that the Support Matrix for Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.2.3 reports that it's not supported to use fwupdate against the F20 cards.
This question still has no answer from engineering.
