[PATCH 4.19 01/22] usb: ohci: Make distrust_firmware param default to false

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

commit c4005a8f65edc55fb1700dfc5c1c3dc58be80209 upstream.

The 'distrust_firmware' module parameter dates from 2004 and the USB
subsystem is a lot more mature and reliable now than it was then.
Alter the default to false now.
