Hi Yi,

As FPGA image sizes are increasing, this change can be really helpful.
I have one comment below.

Your implementation is pretty straightforward. My one complaint is
that this searches for the file on the firmware path each time we need
to get the next chunk of the firmware. Could you change this to find
the file in the firmware path once and save that path somewhere?
Possibly added to struct firmware_buf since that's the priv.
