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
one.
