Subject[RFC] firmware load: defer request_firmware during early boot and resume
From
The RFC patch is just for discussing if the idea of deferring
request_firmware is doable for addressing the issue of
request_firmware in resume path, which is caused by driver
unbind/rebind during resume.

At least usb bus is involved in such things, one driver may be
unbound and rebound in resume path at several situations, and
request_firmware is often called inside probe().

Also the idea should be helpful for other hotplug buses too,
at least there was the similar problem report on pcmcia bus.
