Hello Everyone,

I have a hardware(Noise processing chip) for which I am 
writing the driver.Is it a good idea to download the 
firmware in probe function by spawing kthread?I can't download
the firmware using request_firmware api as this hardware
is required during bootup for boot-up sound and request_firmware
is out of question because of no support in user-space.

Am i missing something?I am bit concerned about boot-up time
as well.

Please help me.
