You know, I'm wondering if it just makes sense to go straight into making
CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK nothing but a setting a bool on a
config to true.


Thoughts, preferences?

After which we can add two generic syfs firmware knobs to help do the same as I did
for debugfs, only we actually support it as proper API. Thoughts?

For instance for changing to force the usermode helper:
