Subject[PATCH 02/18] docs: fix location of request_firmware & friends
Date
commit 5d6d1ddd2730 ("firmware: move firmware loader into its own directory")
and other commits renamed the old firmware_class.c file and split it
into separate files, but documentation was not changed accordingly,
causing Sphinx errors.

Change the location accordingly at the documentation files.

While here, add a missing entry at request_firmware.rst for
release_firmware() function.
