Merge tag 'driver-core-5.18-rc7' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core

Pull driver core fixes from Greg KH:
 "Here is one fix, and three documentation updates for 5.18-rc7.

  The fix is for the firmware loader which resolves a long-reported
  problem where the credentials of the firmware loader could be set to a
  userspace process without enough permissions to actually load the
  firmware image. Many Android vendors have been reporting this for
  quite some time.

  The documentation updates are for the embargoed-hardware-issues.rst
  file to add a new entry, change an existing one, and sort the list to
  make changes easier in the future.

  All of these have been in linux-next for a while with no reported
  issues"
