(I forgot to complete the post.) ... fixed SCSI devices and among
themselves. That's old and continues to become apparent with more and
more types of hardware. The solution is old too; distributors should be
aware of it.

That said, the way how eth1394 is married with ieee1394 could stand
improvement. There should be an option (and it should be the default) to
let eth1394 load its ROM entries == don't automatically modprobe eth1394
as soon as the low level set up a host adapter.
