    SubjectRe: [GIT *] Allow request_firmware() to be satisfied from in-kernel, use it in more drivers.

    I also don't get why one can't put them in a module wrapper in some OTHER
    dir as

    __init__ fwFOO = something_huge_made_from_a_string ;
    EXPORT_SYMBOL(fwFOO);

    and have the real driver module just reference fwFOO in its init sequence.
    Modprobe can deal with where to look for it. No kernel source need be
    tainted.
