The attached patch introduces MODULE_FIRMWARE as a mechanism for
advertising that a particular firmware file is to be loaded - it will
then show up via modinfo and could be used e.g. when packaging a kernel.

I (and several others who met at OLS) would really like for this to
get upstream. Can you sling that one line patch (will forward again)
into -mm please?
