    almost, the one thing that this could have done would be to offer an
    option to bundle the firmware with the module. currently it offers the
    option to load the firmware at the same time as the module, not _quite_
    the same thing.

    there was also the issue that was raised about how to handle firmware
    during suspend/resume. I don't remember seeing a happy solution to that
