SubjectRe: [RFC 1/2] devlink: add simple fw crash helpers

Thanks for doing this series as a PoC, counter to the module_firmware_crash()
which I proposed to taint the kernel with a firmware crash flag to the kernel
and module.

For those not famliar about devlink:

https://lwn.net/Articles/677967/
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/networking/devlink/index.html

The github page also is now 404 as Jiri merged that stuff into iproute2:

This was looking super sexy up to here. This is networking specific.
We want something generic for *anything* that requests firmware.

I'm afraid this won't work for something generic. I don't think its
throw-away work though, the idea to provide a generic interface to
dump firmware through netlink might be nice for networking, or other
things.

But I have a feeling we'll want something still more generic than this.

So networking may want to be aware that a firmware crash happened as
part of this network device health thing, but firmware crashing is a
generic thing.

I have now extended my patch set to include uvents and I am more set on
that we need the taint now more than ever.
