    firmware_class: make request_firmware_nowait more useful · 9ebfbd45
    Johannes Berg authored
    Unfortunately, one cannot hold on to the struct firmware
    that request_firmware_nowait() hands off, which is needed
    in some cases. Allow this by requiring the callback to
    free it (via release_firmware).
    Additionally, give it a gfp_t parameter -- all the current
    users call it from a GFP_KERNEL context so the GFP_ATOMIC
    isn't necessary. This also marks an API break which is
    useful in a sense, although that is obviously not the
    primary purpose of this change.
