Scratch that.  We can't do that.  The _nowait function is supposed to be
callable in non-blocking contexts, but no such requirement applies to
the callback.  Indeed, the callback function for rtl8192ce itself calls
_request_firmware in case of error, and calling that from a
non-interruptible context would be an error.
