This is just an update to Ben Collins and others who are working on
Firewire in 2.6-test1. Firewire is still not a happy camper (I will be
looking for patches as they are submitted so as to provide hopefully
useful feedback. In case it wasn't obvious, my firewire card is driven
00:0d.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): VIA Technologies, Inc. IEEE 1394 Host
Controller (rev 43)
and the controllers on my external firewire drive bays are driven by
Oxford Semi '900 chips.
The following is a nasty message I got after booting:
