Subject[PATCH 05/11] driver-core: modify FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL help message
Date
From: matt mooney <mfm@muteddisk.com>

The kernel source tree includes a number of firmware 'blobs'
that are used by various drivers. The recommended way to
- use these is to run "make firmware_install" and to copy the
- resulting binary files created in usr/lib/firmware/ of the
- kernel tree to /lib/firmware/ on your system so that they can
- be loaded by userspace helpers on request.
+ use these is to run "make firmware_install", which, after
+ converting ihex files to binary, copies all of the needed
+ binary files in firmware/ to /lib/firmware/ on your system so
+ that they can be loaded by userspace helpers on request.

Enabling this option will build each required firmware blob
into the kernel directly, where request_firmware() will find
