LinuxKPI: add firmware loading support

Description

LinuxKPI: add firmware loading support

Implement linux firmware KPI compat code.
This includes: request_firmware() request_firmware_nowait(),
request_firmware_direct(), firmware_request_nowarn(),
and release_firmware().

Given we will try to map requested names from natively ported
or full-linuxkpi-using drivers to a firmware(9) auto-loading
name format (.ko file name and image name matching),
we quieten firmware(9) and print success or failure (unless
the _nowarn() version was called) in the linuxkpi implementation.
At the moment we try up-to 4 different naming combinations,
with path stripped, original name, and requested name with '/'
or '.' replaced.

We do not currently defer loading in the "nowait" case.
