[PATCH 0/7 v2] firmware: dynamic firmware id allocation

From: Samuel Ortiz
Date: Tue May 26 2009 - 18:50:01 EST

Hi Greg, hi Andrew,

This 6 patches patch set allows for a removal of the firmware name length
restriction from the firmware class API.
Currently we're limited to 30 characters for firmware names because of a
statically allocated 30 bytes string in the firmware class code. We also want
to remove the FIRMWARE_NAME_MAX definition to prevent future drivers from
referencing it.

Patch #1 removes that restriction by dynamically allocating the firmware id.
Patches #2,3,4,5,6 remove all FIRMWARE_NAME_MAX references from the kernel
Patch #7 gets rid of the FIRMWARE_NAME_MAX definition, and should be applied
only once all previous patches from this patch set are applied.


v2: Included John Linville's patch for the libertas wireless driver.
