And you can _continue_ to do that. You'd need to install the firmware
just once, and that's all. It's a non-issue, and it isn't _worth_ the
added complexity of building the firmware into the module.

_Especially_ since I strongly suspect you'll come back with an even
sillier argument if we do.

Like claiming that you also run 'grep request_firmware tg3.ko' and your
scripts will fail if it matches...
