[PATCH] firmware: change kernel read fail to dev_dbg()

From: Luis R. Rodriguez
Date: Sat Feb 27 2016 - 18:16:22 EST

When we now use the new kernel_read_file_from_path() we
are reporting a failure when we iterate over all the paths
possible for firmware. Before using kernel_read_file_from_path()
we only reported a failure once we confirmed a file existed
with filp_open() but failed with fw_read_file_contents().

With kernel_read_file_from_path() both are done for us and
we obviously are now reporting too much information given that
some optional paths will always fail and clutter the logs.

fw_get_filesystem_firmware() already has a check for failure
and uses an internal flag, FW_OPT_NO_WARN, to let users
warn or not warn. For instance request_firmware_direct()
does not warn as this can be used for optional firmware
as it has no usermode helper fallback. In the future we
may want to change this, given everyone is disabling the
usermode helper anyway now, but for now keep reporting
only as was designed. request_firmware_direct() will
continue to not report errors as it was designed not to.

Note, this is a fix for a small issue reported by Heiner after
Mimi's common kernel file loader changes were merged on James tree.
I'm following up through James. If this should go through someone
else's tree feel free to coordiante accordingly.
