I demand that Ben Hutchings may or may not have written...

> When originally introduced into staging, these drivers had custom
> firmware-loading code which checked a version number and CRC at the end of
> each blob.  This reintroduces those checks, using crc-ccitt instead of
> custom code.

> The removed firmware will be added to the linux-firmware.git repository.

> Based on work by Darren Salt <linux at youmustbejoking.demon.co.uk>.

> Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <ben at decadent.org.uk>
