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.
