     161        Alternatively, if you change CONFIG_DRM_RADEON to '=m' in your .config
     162        the firmware can be loaded automatically from /lib/firmware/radeon when
     163        it installs the module. This offers a tiny space saving, but also means
     164        that the screen will be blank for a longer time before the framebuffer
     165        appears. Distros take this approach because it is not practical to
     166        specify every possible firmware and the kernel would be excessively big.
