Subject[171/205] firmware_class: fix memory leak - free allocated pages
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>

commit dd336c554d8926c3348a2d5f2a5ef5597f6d1a06 upstream.

fix memory leak introduced by the patch 6e03a201bbe:
firmware: speed up request_firmware()

1. vfree won't release pages there were allocated explicitly and mapped
using vmap. The memory has to be vunmap-ed and the pages needs
to be freed explicitly

2. page array is moved into the 'struct
firmware' so that we can free it from release_firmware()
and not only in fw_dev_release()

The fix doesn't break the firmware load speed.
