NAME

       request_firmware_nowait -

SYNOPSIS

       int request_firmware_nowait  (struct module * module, int hotplug,
                                      const char * name,
                                      struct device * device, void * context,
                                      void (*cont) <funcparams>const struct firmware *fw, void *context</funcparams>);

ARGUMENTS

       module module requesting the firmware

       hotplug
              invokes hotplug event to copy the firmware image if this flag is
              non-zero else the firmware copy must be done manually.

       name   name of firmware file

       device device for which firmware is being loaded

       context
              will be passed over to cont, and fw  may  be  NULL  if  firmware
              request fails.

       cont   function will be called asynchronously when the firmware request
              is over.

DESCRIPTION

       Asynchronous variant of request_firmware for contexts where it  is  not
       possible to sleep.
