    IMO you're being stupid.

    How about explainign why it makes any difference what-so-ever?

    If you can load the module, you can load the firmware. Claiming anything
    else is just _stupid_.

    And if you cannot see the advantage of having _one_ interface to firmware
    loading, instead of each driver picking a random approach, I don't know
    what to say.

    The fact that some people have been confused and apparently blathered
    about memory savings is totally immaterial. Ignore the stupid people.
