Subject[patch 2.6.12-rc3] modified firmware_class.c to add a new function request_firmware_nowait_nohotplug
This is the patch to add dell_rbu driver. This patch requires the 
firmware_class.c patch sent earlier which adds request_firmware_nowait_nohotplug
function.
Andrew ,
Could you add this patch to the -mm tree. This patch was submitted about a
week ago for review.

Thanks

+Purpose:
+Demonstrate the usage of the new open sourced rbu (Remote BIOS Update) driver
+for updating BIOS images on Dell servers and desktops.
+
+Scope:
+This document discusses the functionality of the rbu driver only.
+It does not cover the support needed from aplications to enable the BIOS to
+update itself with the image downloaded in to the memory.
+
+Overview:
+This driver enables userspace applications to update the BIOS on Dell servers
+(starting from servers sold since 1999), desktops and notebooks (starting
+from those sold in 2005).
+
+The driver supports BIOS update using the monilothic image and packetized
+image methods. In case of moniolithic the driver allocates a contiguous chunk
+of physical pages having the BIOS image. In case of packetized the app
+using the driver breaks the image in to packets of fixed sizes and the driver
+would place each packet in contiguous physical memory. The driver also
+maintains a link list of packets for reading them back.
+If the dell_rbu driver is unloaded all the allocated memory is freed.
+
+The rbu driver needs to have an application which will inform the BIOS to
+enable the update in the next system reboot.
+
+The user should not unload the rbu driver after downloading the BIOS image
+or updating.
+
+The driver load creates the following directories under the /sys file system.
+/sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/loading
+/sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/data
+/sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/image_type
+/sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/data
+
+The driver supports two types of update mechanism; monolithic and packetized.
+These update mechanism depends upon the BIOS currently running on the system.
+Most of the Dell systems support a monolithic update where the BIOS image is
+copied to a single contiguous block of physical memory.
+In case of packet mechanism the single memory can be broken in smaller chuks
+of contiguous memory and the BIOS image is scattered in these packets.
+
+By default the driver uses monolithic memory for the update type. This can be
+changed to contiguous during the driver load time by specifying the load
+parameter image_type=packet. This can also be changed later as below
+echo "packet" > /sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/image_type
+
+Do the steps below to download the BIOS image.
+1) echo 1 > /sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/loading
+2) cp bios_image.hdr /sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/data
+3) echo 0 > /sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/loading
+
+The /sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/ entries will remain till the following is
+done.
+echo -1 > /sys/class/firmware/dell_rbu/loading
+
+Until this step is completed the drivr cannot be unloaded.
+
+Also the driver provides /sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/data readonly file to
+read back the image downloaded. This is useful in case of packet update
+mechanism where the above steps 1,2,3 will repeated for every packet.
+By reading the /sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/data file all packet data
+downloaded can be verified in a single file.
+The packets are arranged in this file one after the other in a FIFO order.
+
+NOTE:
+This driver requires a patch for firmware_class.c which has the addition
+of request_firmware_nowait_nohotplug function to wortk
+Also after updating the BIOS image an user mdoe application neeeds to execute
+code which message the BIOS update request to the BIOS. So on the next reboot
+the BIOS knows about the new image downloaded and it updates it self.
+Also don't unload the rbu drive if the image has to be updated.

+ * Remote BIOS Update (rbu) driver is used for updating DELL BIOS by
+ * creating entries in the /sys file systems on Linux 2.6 and higher
+ * kernels. The driver supports two mechanism to update the BIOS namely
+ * contiguous and packetized. Both these methods still require having some
+ * application to set the CMOS bit indicating the BIOS to update itself
+ * after a reboot.
+ *
+ * Contiguous method:
+ * This driver writes the incoming data in a monolithic image by allocating
+ * contiguous physical pages large enough to accommodate the incoming BIOS
+ * image size.
+ *
+ * Packetized method:
+ * The driver writes the incoming packet image by allocating a new packet
+ * on every time the packet data is written. This driver requires an
+ * application to break the BIOS image in to fixed sized packet chunks.
