I would point out that the ice driver does use it to help indicate which
section of the flash is currently being updated.

i.e.

$ devlink dev flash pci/0000:af:00.0 file firmware.bin
Preparing to flash
[fw.mgmt] Erasing
[fw.mgmt] Erasing done
[fw.mgmt] Flashing 100%
[fw.mgmt] Flashing done 100%
[fw.undi] Erasing
[fw.undi] Erasing done
[fw.undi] Flashing 100%
[fw.undi] Flashing done 100%
[fw.netlist] Erasing
[fw.netlist] Erasing done
[fw.netlist] Flashing 100%
[fw.netlist] Flashing done 100%

I'd like to keep that, as it helps tell which component is currently
being updated. If we drop this, then either I have to manually build
strings which include the component name, or we lose this information on
display.

Thanks,
Jake
