Arend, Kalle, would love to hear your feedback.
I am not sure if it was ath10k, but Kalle will surely know. The other

The brcmfmac driver I maintain is slightly different. It downloads two
distinct pieces of firmware of which one is optional for certain
configurations. Currently, my driver does two asynchronous requests for
it, but I consider changing it and only make the first request
asynchronous and the second request synchronous. You can look at the
current code in drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcmfmac/firmware.c.
However, I did quite some restructuring last week. Anyway, I probably
will end up using the "optional" api where appropriate.
