Userspace firmware loading is becoming depreciated, per the latest portage news article. Okay. So I try to disable CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER in the .config file (ck-sources) unfortunately after genkernel runs I keep finding it is reset back to to yes.

Menuconfig tells me it is dependant on CONFIG_FW_LOADER , which I cannot turn off, because it is dependant on dozens of other settings in my kernel, including processor support and microcode.

I am not the best kernel config guy, but it seems counter intuitive to have to remove processor support or remove microcode loading from the kernel.

What am I missing?

Second this. I too tried to disable the option as news article suggests but kernel rejects this change in the configuration

FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK turns it on. Make sure it is disabled and you should be able to turn off FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER as well.

FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK is currently set to No.

EDIT: Looks like DELL_RBU was the culprit.
