No, it wasn't the problem, even when loading with insmod/modprobe the
timeout occurs on some configurations. For example on, you could
see the 'firmware ueagle-atm/eagleIII.fw is not available' error.

It is only happen for pre-firmware modem (uea_load_firmware) ie where we
just do a request_firmware in the probe without any initialisation before.
So the problem seems to appear when we do a request_firmware too early
in the usb_probe.
