[...] Debian's kernel is patched to make logging of firmware loading and failure consistent. I obviously need to make some exceptions to this. (In fact, to get that change upstream I think that the default needs to remain quiet and I should add functions that provide standard logging of success/failure. Then I would change over most but not all drivers to use the latter.) Ben. -- Ben Hutchings friends: People who know you well, but like you anyway.
