Driver core: Reduce the level of request_firmware() messages
Rafael J. Wysocki [Sat, 27 Feb 2010 20:43:22 +0000 (21:43 +0100)]
The messages from _request_firmware() informing that firmware is
being requested or built-in firmware is going to be used are printed
at KERN_INFO, which produces lots of noise on systems with huge
numbers of AMD CPUs.  Reduce the level of these messages to
KERN_DEBUG to get rid of that noise.
