Subject: [RFT 0/3] cxgb4: use request_firmware_nowait()

From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <>

Its reported that loading the cxgb4 can take over 1 minute,
use the more sane request_firmware_nowait() API call just
in case this amount of time is causing issues. The driver
uses the firmware API 3 times, one for the firmware, one
for configuration and another one for flash, this provides
the port for all cases.

I don't have the hardware so please test. I did verify we
can use this during pci probe and also during the ethtool
flash callback.

Luis R. Rodriguez (3):
  cxgb4: make ethtool set_flash use request_firmware_nowait()
  cxgb4: make configuration load use request_firmware_nowait()
  cxgb4: make device firmware load use request_firmware_nowait()
