    Well, the DFly kernel has some very easy-to-use file access functions
    ala fp_open() and friends (see kern_checkpoint.c for a use case), so
    accessing the firmware file directly is easy enough.

    I would recommend placing it in /boot somewhere though, since it is
    kernel related and /boot can be made more secure via a read-only mount
    than /etc.  Maybe /boot/firmware/
