Subject[PATCH v2 09/11] firmware: enable to force disable the fallback mechanism at run time
Date
You currently need four different kernel builds to test the firmware
API fully. By adding a proc knob to force disable the fallback mechanism
completely we are able to reduce the amount of kernels you need built
to test the firmware API down to two.
