Subject[PATCH] firmware: Allocate firmware id dynamically
Hi Andrew,

Since the firmware loader is not maintained by anyone, I'm sending this one to
you, for the next merge window:

From: Samuel Ortiz <sameo@linux.intel.com>

The firmware loader has a statically allocated 30 bytes long string for the
firmware id (a.k.a. the firmware file name). There is no reason why we couldnt
allocate dynamically, and avoid having restrictions on the firmware names
lengths.
Please note that we have to keep the FIRMWARE_NAME_MAX definition around as
some drivers rely on it.
