Subject[patch 022/123] SCSI: qla1280: Drop host_lock while requesting firmware
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

-----------------

From: Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>

commit 2cec802980727f1daa46d8c31b411e083d49d7a2 upstream.

request_firmware() may sleep and it appears to be safe to release the
spinlock here.
