    Greg, all the feedback gave the impression that request_firmwae hotplug
    stuff was the way to go. Seems it's not required! Now that means it
    needs to be done the way it was before except that it needs to have a
    bin attribute for data and a normal attribute for size.
    This would be even better as it makes it easy to read back the data.

    Thanks
    Abhay
