Run 'objcopy -Iihex -Obinary bootcode.bin.ihex bootcode.bin' first, then
copy the resulting bootcode.bin file to /lib/firmware/av7110/

We didn't want to put raw binary files into the kernel source tree so we
converted them to a simple hex form instead.

As I said, the makefiles in the kernel tree get this right, and convert
them to binary for you and automatically install them. It shouldn't be
hard to fix the v4l tree to do it too, but as I also said, I'm not
particularly interested in doing that myself.
