I think I've decided to kill off DECLARE_BUILTIN_FIRMWARE.
Instead, we're shifting the firmware blobs to ihex files in the firmware/ subdirectory. Having them standalone means that we can also have a 'make firmware_install' target which puts the same firmware files into /lib/firmware where udev can find them.
With DECLARE_BUILTIN_FIRMWARE that wasn't feasible -- we could only build it in, and didn't easily have the option to have it loaded by userspace.
