As the maintainer of this driver I am going to say that I think this is
a stupid change. Yes I know that politically there's a move to make
everything use request firmware. However for my boot device, this is
going to be a royal pain in the butt for developers who wish to boot
test kernels with a / sitting on a 1280.
IMHO this patch brings us nothing, but provides a lot of unnecessary
hassle for users.
