The present ieee1394 is not very well. I have the CD-ROM drive which
carries out unusual recognition. This is recognized as sdX of 435G. The
maintenance also seems not to perform it.

I want to use firewire (4) of FreeBSD. It seems that it came to work by
i386. It seems that it works also by macppc. However, in alpha & cobalt,
it has checked falling. Please use, if it avoids.

However, it is under test...
I want a report.

     firewire.diff		: It is the correction to -current (5/30)
     firewire_freebsd.tar.gz	: FreeBSD firewire(4) etc.
     firewire_netbsd.0719.diff  : firewire (4) etc. -- it is correction

edit your GENERIC. (/sys/arch/{i386, or other}/conf/GENERIC)
