I did address this in my reply to your review, as explained there,
the check + free on test_firmware before calling firmware_request_platform()
is necessary because test_firmware may be non NULL when entering
the function (continued below) ...

I agree that using a private/local firmware pointer instead of
test_firmware and dropping the mutex calls is better. I will make
this change for v12 of this series.

I'll send out a v12 once the remarks from Andy Lutomirski's
have also been discussed.

Hans
