Hi,

I've just got into the sane trouble with i2c-dev and firmware loading 
(saa7134-dvb wanted xc3028-v27.fw). I've solved it with 2.6.27 by making the 
firmware statically loaded in the kernel as a binary blob - Device 
Drivers/Generic Driver Options/Include in-kernel firmware blobs in kernel 
binary. The firmware loading code just takes the binary blob and doesn't load 
it dynamically (it initializes devices in the dynamically loading path - that 
was causing problems).

Regards,
Oldrich.
