Right below where it says the best advise is to use the old drivers it
also says :

Building the new drivers is only for advanced users (who for example
want the better speed of firewire-sbp2 relative to sbp2, on the
hardware on which the new drivers already work) - and for distributors
who know what is required in userspace to make use of the new drivers
(i.e. a patched libraw1394, a libdc1394 prerelease, adapted scripts
and config files etc.).

I suspect "distributors who know what is required in userspace" covers
Fedora and hence the required patches are probably all there.

I believe also it makes firewire generally a lot more stable even
though there are a few regressions.
