Hello Bruce,

Thanks for your reply. In my kernel, I did not find CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL. 
There are only 4 options related to firmware in my kernel:

Any idea?

Not sure if this is related to your specific problem, but to use a
BNX2 NIC I need to enable
in order to pull the BNX2 firmware into the kernel, otherwise it
complains that it can't find the firmware at boot time.
