Rasesh Mody - Dec. 5, 2012, 11:01 p.m.
Change details:
        Modified the firmware naming convention to contain the firmware image
version ( The new convention is <firmware-image>-<firmware-version>.bin
The change will enforce loading only compatible firmware with this driver and
also avoid over-writing the old firmware image in-order to load new version
driver as the firmware names used to be the same.
