RE: patch "firmware loader: allow disabling of udev as firmware loader" added to driver-core tree
Date: Thu Jul 10 2014 - 11:24:51 EST
Here is the patch which I was referring to https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/6/4/327
I was doing the BIOS update test using the DELL BIOS-DUP's with the above patch.
Will provide you more technical analysis on why it is failing by tomorrow.

Because in that long and winding email thread I thought you said this patch _worked_. Obviously I was wrong, sorry, please suggest an alternative.
