In the future I would actually want to take this a step further and put
all that to cfg80211. That way the driver would only need to call
cfg80211_firmware_crashed(wiphy, dump) and cfg80211 will handle the
rest. This would make sure that all drivers use the exactly same user
space interfaces and hopefully also motivate other drivers to use it.
