mod_firmware_load - load sound driver firmware
int mod_firmware_load (const char *fn, char **fp);
fp return for the buffer.
Load the firmware for a sound module (up to 128K) into a buffer. The
buffer is returned in *fp. It is allocated with vmalloc so is virtually
linear and not DMAable. The caller should free it with vfree when
The length of the buffer is returned on a successful load, the value
zero on a failure.
This API is not recommended. Firmware should be loaded via an ioctl
call and a setup application. This function may disappear in future.
