Subject[patch] QLA2xxx FW_LOADER Kconfig issue results in undefined symbols
I hit a small problem (first observed in 2.6.13-rc3-mm1) that resulted in
my kernels no longer building because of undefined references to
request_firmware and release_firmware.

After a little research, I found that the QLA stuff requires CONFIG_FW_LOADER.

I was using the sn2_defconfig as a starting point for my config file.
This config file compiles some of the QLA2xxx drivers statically.
By default, CONFIG_FW_LOADER is set to "m" and not "y".

So this small change should ensure CONFIG_FW_LOADER is set properly.

Perhaps there are better ways to do this?
