    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.
