    SubjectPROBLEM: 2.6.3 + external firewire dvd writer - frequent freezes

    I'm using an external FireWire DVD writer (Plextor 708 in case w/Oxford
    911 chipset). This was working fine until kernel 2.6.2.

    Since I upgraded to 2.6.3, it frequently happens that the system totally
    freezes when trying to write a DVD. It's really a hard crash, no mouse
    movement, no ping on the network. Reset required.

    It doesn't happen each time I try to burn a DVD, but in about 20% the
    cases. So basically the writer is unusable with 2.6.3.

    I searched the web and archives for the problem, but didn't find any
    results, except for one guy describing the same problem, also with
    2.6.3, also on this mailing list here:

    However he didn't get any replies.

    Please CC: me for replies, or if anybody needs .config, lspci, or other
    info. The firewire controller is a Texas Instruments TSB43AB22/A.

    bye & thanks for your time,
