No per-driver default.

Maybe the difference between mlxsw and mlx5 can be simply explained by
the fact that mlxsw loads firmware from /lib/firmware on every probe
(more or less).

It's only natural for a driver which loads FW from disk to load it on
driver reload.

This sounds too complicated. Don't try to guess what the user wants.

I'm all for the level/action.

Since reload does not check today if anything changed - i.e. if reload
is actually needed, neither should fw-activate, IMO. I'd expect the
"--force behavior" to be the default.
