[PATCH 6/9] firmware: print firmware name on fallback path

Previously, one could assume the firmware name from the preceding
message: "Direct firmware load for {name} failed with error %d".

However, with the new firmware_request_nowarn() entrypoint, the message
outlined above will not always be printed.

Therefore, we add the firmware name to the fallback path spew in order
to associate it with the appropriate request.
