    Because it's inadequate. You can't guarantee that we ever loaded
    firmware. The same hardware might maintain state over warm reboots but
    not over suspend. We never loaded the firmware loader driver. We never
    called request_firmware(). We have no way of knowing whether the device
    is an older one that needs firmware loading, or a newer one which has it
    in flash.
