I've found the characters in firmware binary blob in general update 
tools produced by Oxford Semiconductor. So I guessed this is the reason 
of the name for this driver.

If possible, I really want to rename it because it's too long to write 
;) But I think renaming driver is a bit delicate issue.

For this issue, I need comments from the other maintainers. I guess I 
can do it if Iwai-san agrees.
