Subject[PATCH] ARM: imx_v6_v7_defconfig: Add CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK
Date
Allows to load firmware files which aren't built inside the kernel.

Especially useful for CODA firmware (vpu_fw_imx6q.bin) which is usually
located in the rootfs.

Hi Shawn,

I'm not sure if this patch is acceptable since I've noticed that no
configuration currently has that option enabled (why?).

As mentioned in the commit, I had to enable that in order to have CODA
load the VPU firmware properly.

Another option would be to make the CODA driver a module...

Let me know your thoughts.

Regards,
Gary
