--- Comment #1 from Bjoern A. Zeeb <bz@FreeBSD.org> ---
For a couple of wifi drivers rtwn, iwn, iwm, ...

If you compile the driver into the kernel it's rtwn  if you compile the
firmware into the kernel too it is device rtwnfw   (see sys/conf/files) and it
will compile all firmware images in based on that single line.

If you compile them as modules you get one kernel object (module) per firmware
image instead of one for all.

You would probably load only one module of all the firmware once in addition to
the driver one.

Hope that clarifies the technicallity;  I'll leave the language to you.
