I think that'll depend on the device. The typhoon NIC driver needs its
firmware on 'ifconfig eth? up', and on resume, so it will need it after
we discard the init block. I expect others will need it at the very
least for resume.

Not that I'm using firmware loader for it right now, but it's been on my
TODO list for ages...
