From: Rishabh Bhatnagar <rishabhb@codeaurora.org>

When calling request_firmware_into_buf() with the FW_OPT_NOCACHE flag
it is expected that firmware is loaded into buffer from memory.
But inside alloc_lookup_fw_priv every new firmware that is loaded is
added to the firmware cache (fwc) list head. So if any driver requests
a firmware that is already loaded the code iterates over the above
mentioned list and it can end up giving a pointer to other device driver's
firmware buffer.
Also the existing copy may either be modified by drivers, remote processors
or even freed. This causes a potential security issue with batched requests
when using request_firmware_into_buf.

Fix alloc_lookup_fw_priv to not add to the fwc head list if FW_OPT_NOCACHE
is set, and also don't do the lookup in the list.

Fixes: 0e742e9275 ("firmware: provide infrastructure to make fw caching optional")
[mcgrof: broken since feature introduction on v4.8]

This has been tested with the self test firmware scrip and found no
regressions.
