ALSA: sscape: convert to firmware loader framework

The conversion solves the problem that firmware size was set to 64KB
while non PnP cards have 128KB firmware files.

An additional firmware initialization code has been moved from the OSS

This module supports multiple cards. ISA PnP must be enabled.
You need sscape_ctl tool in alsa-tools package for loading
the microcode.
This module supports multiple cards.
The driver requires the firmware loader support on kernel.

The PCM audio is supported on SoundScape Classic, Elite, PnP
and VIVO cards. The supported OEM cards are SPEA Media FX and
Reveal SC-600.
The MIDI support is very experimental.
The MIDI support is very experimental and requires binary
firmware files called "scope.cod" and "" where the
? is digit 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4. The firmware files can be found
in DOS or Windows driver packages. One has to put the firmware
files into the /lib/firmware directory.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called snd-sscape.
