Subject[patch 76/86] staging: r8712u: Use asynchronous firmware loading
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@lwfinger.net>

commit 8c213fa59199f9673d66970d6940fa093186642f upstream.

In https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/27996, failure of driver r8712u is
reported, with a timeout during module loading due to synchronous loading
of the firmware. The code now uses request_firmware_nowait().
