At least you get an fwnode.  On my JVC-Victor Interlink MP-XP7310 laptop
running NetBSD-current that is less than a week old, the PCI firewire
controller is detected:

fwohci0 at pci1 dev 3 function 1: Ricoh 5C551 PCI-CardBus bridge/Firewire (rev. 0x00)
fwohci0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 18 (irq 7)
fwohci0: OHCI 1.0, 00:e0:18:00:03:10:e5:11, 400Mb/s, 2048 max_rec, 4 ir_ctx, 4 it_ctx
fw0 at fwohci0: 00:e0:18:00:03:10:e5:11:0a:02:ff:ff:f0:01:00:00

but no fwnode, fwbus, or firewire drive is detected when I connect an
external IEEE-1394 drive to it.  Any idea why, or if I am doing something

Thanks in advance.
