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.
