    It isn't really necessary. If you can load modules, then you have
    userspace. And if you have userspace, you can load firmware too.

    Yes, it's had to be clever enough for that for a long time anyway --
    most modern drivers have _only_ the 'request_firmware()' option and
    never gave you the choice of building it in. I'm just updating some of
    the older drivers to catch up.
