I remembered that I have questioned on dynamic listing/updating of
firmware via procfs, looks you don't reply, :-(

IMO, it is not a good idea to update firmware path dynamically via proc
because it may be too late to update a dynamic search path via /proc
and drivers need request firmware just after rootfs is mounted.

kernel parameter should be a good way to pass one customerized
