NAME = "kernel_FirmwareRequest"
AUTHOR = "The Chromium OS Authors"
PURPOSE = "Verify kernel correctly implements firmware request APIs"
Fails if a known-existing firmware file can't be loaded (e.g., due to
crashes, race conditions on kfree()'ing the name, etc.), or if
known-nonexistent firmware files can be loaded.

TEST_CLASS = "kernel"
TEST_TYPE = "client"
DOC = """
This test will run the firmware request kernel self test (from upstream).
This tests that the request_firmware() and request_firmware_nowait() kernel
APIs are somewhat sane. It tries to load the empty filename ("") as well as
a small toy firmware, and checks that it matches. It also makes sure a
non-existent firmware cannot be found.
We rerun the same test several times to increase the probability of
catching errors.
Of course, a success doesn't mean the absence of race conditions or bugs.
We may have just won the race.
