Microcode file naming conventions?
So, what with userland firmware loading, there are going to be a lot
of firmware files in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware. And they all should have
unique names of less than or equal to 30 characters.
Now, I could keep making them up as I go, but is there some better naming
system? The drivers already in the kernel do *not* follow any consistent
system. If upstream supplies a separate firmware file, there's something
to be said for using that, of course, but that doesn't seem to be the
(And the Atmel driver also allows the firmware file name to be specified at
I'm thinking that probably every file should start with the name of the
kernel module which uses it. (Not all the existing examples do this, but
most of them do.) Any other thoughts?
There are none so blind as those who will not see.
