Sorry, you're wrong. And Rafael *told* you why you are wrong, and you
ignored him and talked about "exec" some more.

So go back and read Rafael's email. The point is, you are focusing too
much on the name (which Rafael talked about and said is misleading).

But it's not the name that matters, it's the concept. Loading firmware
during the suspend process is broken (read Rafael's email about
suggested renaming).

AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH EXEC. It doesn't matter *how* you load
it. You could load it by reading a file directly from disk, AND IT
WOULD STILL BE WRONG FOR THE EXACT SAME DAMN REASON.

I outlined that reason too. The filesystem may not be up and running yet.

Get it?

So please, read the emails. People actually *agree* that the name may
be a bit misleading, but instead of harping on bogus issues, just read
the emails from people like Rafael about it.

So STOP with this idiocy already. It has nothing to do with exec.
Seriously. Get that through your head already.

Linus
