Nothing obvious leaps out at me. The only thing I can suggest is
perhaps the kernel is looking for radeon/R600_rlc.bin? Try setting it
This works for me (with a different Radeon card):
# CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD is not set
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="radeon/BARTS_mc.bin radeon/BARTS_me.bin radeon/BARTS_pfp.bin radeon/BTC_rlc.bin"
