Firewire by Oliva revisted

Ok, have the drivers installed via README from http://www.ic.unicamp.br/~oliva/snapshots/FC2-firewire/0README Section 2.1
However, rebooting this kernel 2.6.6-1.403 and running modprobe ohci1394 and sbp2 (mind you it's detected at kernel boot), and
running sh ./rescan-scsi-bus.sh changes absolutely nothing. My external Firewire BUSLink 48x12x48 drive is still not detected.

lsmod shows:
sbp2                   18184  0
ohci1394               26392  0
ieee1394              278964  2 sbp2,ohci1394

and lspci -v shows:

02:09.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB12LV26 IEEE-1394 Controller (Link) (prog-if 10 [OHCI])
Subsystem: Procomp Informatics Ltd: Unknown device 8010
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
Memory at feafb800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
Memory at feaf4000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 1

However I can go back to my good old kernel 2.6.1-1.65smp and my Firewire drive is detected under Xcdroast-0.98alpha15-2 and works even. :)

I'm afraid we're still looking for some patch upstream maybe by kernel 2.6.7 or 2.6.8 or something like 2.7 or maybe never :)
