    Yes, it's been a while since the last submission for review [1], and
    most of the changes went over linux1394-devel only. And to put it
    mildly, there aren't a lot of capable reviewers watching that list.

    Changes since last submission, AFAIR:
    - completion of the DMA engine
    - completion of the userspace ABI
    - extensions to exported sysfs attributes
    - some other feature additions like bus manager capability
    - lots of bug fixes
    - some style fixes

    I'll folllow up with "git diff v2.6.21-rc3..juju" ripped apart,
    reordered, and refreshed against 2.6.21:

    [PATCH 1/6] firewire: handling of cards, buses, nodes
    [PATCH 2/6] firewire: isochronous and asynchronous I/O
    [PATCH 3/6] firewire: char device interface
    [PATCH 4/6] firewire: OHCI-1394 lowlevel driver
    [PATCH 5/6] firewire: SBP-2 highlevel driver
    [PATCH 6/6] firewire: add it all to kbuild

    (If this division seems odd, don't blame Kristian, blame me. :-)
    I'm looking forward to comments.
