    I am not familiar with the PCI subsystem, thus cannot advise how to
    handle it best nor wanted to post a patch myself (yet).

    It seems to me, using the .callback and .driver_data doesn't make it
    cleaner and leaner.

    It is necessary; at least if the workaround resides in ohci1394.
    Otherwise the controller won't come back after a suspend/ resume cycle.
    (See Rob's post from February, ) Maybe there is another
    way to do that if the workaround was moved to pci/quirks.c.

    pci_set_master(dev) can be moved below the second part of the Toshiba
    workaround. That means AFAIU, the 2nd part of the Toshiba workaround can
    be moved out of ohci1394 into pci_fixup_device() which is called from
    pci_enable_device(), to be called as a DECLARE_PCI_FIXUP_ENABLE hook.

    The first part of the workaround, i.e. caching the cache line size, for
    example by means of a static variable, would have to go into an
    _FIXUP_EARLY, _FIXUP_HEADER, or _FIXUP_FINAL hook. I am not sure yet
    about which type of hook to use.

    Furthermore, everything which belongs to the workaround should IMO be
    enclosed by #ifdef SOME_SENSIBLE_MACRO. This avoids kernel bloat for any
    target which is surely not a Toshiba laptop. Rob used an #if
