[PATCH 3.18 057/124] [media] dvb-usb: dont use stack for firmware load




3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 43fab9793c1f44e665b4f98035a14942edf03ddc upstream.

As reported by Marc Duponcheel <marc@xxxxxxxxxx>, firmware load on
dvb-usb is using the stack, with is not allowed anymore on default
Kernel configurations:
