Yeah, I have more reports from people, that with recent kernels, the
ieee1394-* links showed up and replaced the scsi-* links, which they
say never happended before.
We ship these rules for a long time now, so I just guessed, they never
really worked before, but as all depends on timing, it's probably not
predictable what happens. Regardless of the needed fix for scsi sysfs,
we should provide both links, I guess.
