[linux-dvb] [PATCH] firmware: convert av7110 driver to request_firmware()

What is the purpose of this patch?  How does the driver benefit?  I
ran into a problem today where I was getting a 'dvb-ttpci: Failed to
load firmware "av7110/bootcode.bin"' error.  This happened after I
downloaded a fresh copy of v4l and compiled the drivers for my nexus.
After looking into this problem I've found that a lot of users have
experienced this error and from what I've read most have just reverted
to an older v4l tree.

Btw, the only "bootcode.bin" I see is at
v4l-dvb/linux/firmware/av7110/bootcode.bin.ihex and as per a warning,
I don't dare rename that file and try to copy av7110/bootcode.bin
somewhere and cross my fingers.

Maybe I'm ignorant of it's true purpose but the only thing this
bootcode patch seems to do is cause problems and frustrate users.
Please resolve this!
