Do I understand correctly that at this moment it is only known that the
bug could be
- *either* a 2.6.31 -> 2.6.32 regression
- *or* an x86-64 specific bug that does not occur on x86-32,

I have an Core 2 Duo based PC with x86-32 kernel and userland and an AMD
based x86-64 PC and could give ohci1394_dma=early a try on both (never
tested it myself before). I could furthermore attempt to build and
install an x86-64 kernel on the Core 2 Duo PC but I am afraid I am far
too short of spare time for that.
