it's a new firmware loader that's standardized across SigmaDSP parts.
i (correctly) assumed this driver wasnt going to be accepted right
away, so i wanted to get feedback in parallel to the firmware loader

> This looks redundant - it doesn't offer any opportunity to configure the firmware to download and you're already (as one one would expect) automatically downloading the firmware. If this is being exposed at all it should be via debugfs.
SigmaDSP parts have the ability to change firmwares on the fly. this
isnt a debug feature, it's somewhat core to these parts. idea being
that you can load up different mini signal processing engines based on
the current needs.
