    Hi Neil,

    Thank you for the review. I have updated the patch series with the
    following changes:
    - Rename the existing t4fw.bin file as t4fw-1.3.10.0.bin
    - Add t4fw.bin as a symlink to the latest t4fw revision.

    The driver looks up "t4fw.bin", the symlink allows updates of the FW
    without actually modifying the driver source.
    Also, if the firmware revision under /lib/firmware/cxgb4/t4fw.bin is
    more recent than the adapter's embedded FW,
    the driver will update it. The FW revisions are forward compatible.

    The following changes since commit 15888a2eab052ac3d3f49334e4f6f05f347a516e:

    bnx2x: Adding FW 7.0.29.0 (2011-10-24 16:31:44 +0200)
