ihex.h: binary representation of ihex records
Some devices need their firmware as a set of {address, len, data...} records in some specific order rather than a simple blob. The normal way of doing this kind of thing is 'ihex', which is a text format and not entirely suitable for use in the kernel. This provides a binary representation which is very similar, but much more compact -- and a helper routine to skip to the next record, because the alignment constraints mean that everybody will screw it up for themselves otherwise. Also a helper function which can verify that a 'struct firmware' contains a valid set of ihex records, and that following them won't run off the end of the loaded data.
