[PATCH v1 0/4] firmware loader: cleanup and introduce search paths option

From: Ming Lei
Date: Thu Jun 06 2013 - 08:02:11 EST


The 1st patch cancels exporting of cache_firmware and uncache_firmware.

The 2nd one simplifies holding module for request_firmware().

The 3rd one introduces one kernel option to allow distributions or users
to set their specific firmware search paths.

The 4th one don't allow to request firmware via relative path.

- 3/4: make code more clean, take the approach suggested by Takashi
- 4/4: introduce 4/4
