Subject[RFC PATCH v2 11/13] bootsplash: sysfs entries to load and unload files
Date
Users can use this to replace their splash screen at runtime by writing
a path and filename to /sys/devices/platform/bootsplash.0/load_file and
making sure the splash is enabled.

Notes:
- The path has to be a path in /lib/firmware since request_firmware()
is used to fetch the data.
- When setting the splash from the shell, echo -n has to be used as
any trailing '\n' newline will be interpreted as part of the path.

Writes to /sys/devices/platform/bootsplash.0/drop_splash will cause the
current splash theme to be freed and the console to switch to text mode,
