Yeah, in retrospect, we probably should have built both stacks and just
blacklisted the old one by default, and provided userspace bits
(basically just libraw1394) that could operate with both stacks...

That said, we're reasonably close to having ohci 1.0 controllers playing
nice w/the new stack. I just got back from lunch, diving back into the
code now, actually. :)
