No firmware provided for sms1xxx DVB-T stick

Bug Description

The attached patch defines the firmware filename for the sms1xxx 55xxx DVB-T stick, and corrects the autodetection for the 2040:5500 version.

This patch depends on another patch in my git tree:
sms1xxx: add capability to define device-specific firmware filenames;a=commitdiff;h=79d4df7cb550c4a37ac93d6e2a2cf18cbcd04b33

Without the patch mentioned above, the patch attached will break the build.

There are two other cleanup patches in that tree that I would also like to be merged, so that the difference between this driver and the one that will be submitted to 2.6.27 will be as small as possible.

I'll send a request to kernel-team as well -- I filed this bug so that this issue is tracked.

The hosting of the sms1xxx firmware will be dealt with separately.
