I'm very confused. I can do this...

make INSTALL_FW_PATH=/tmp/foo firmware_install
su otheruser
touch firmware/.ihex2fw.cmd (gives EPERM as expected)
make INSTALL_FW_PATH=/tmp/foo2 firmware_install

And it _works_ for me, after I've made that change in
scripts/Makefile.fwinst. But I don't have .ihex2fw.d -- I
have .ihex2fw.cmd. What is in your .ihex2fw.d? And does it work if you
include _that_ from firmware/Makefile?

/me wonders where Sam is hiding...
