I looked at this, it basically consists of a function load_firmware() that
loads a named file (from /etc/firmware) into dynamically allocated memory.
I have ported it and I would prefer this to the helper application that I
wrote the other day as its automagic. I have submitted this via send-pr as
its kind of unrelated to bluetooth, see:

for details..

I dont know enough about the whole vnode thing to know if it does it the
correct NetBSD way but it works just fine as is.
