IOW, ohci1394's bus reset handler is never called again.

Does this happen only if you reset all buses at once?
Does it only happen on the Indigita card or also on the Unibrain card?
Do the controllers share IRQs?
Does it happen if there is no transmission or reception going on?

It would be nice if you create an entry at If you
do, also add a link to an archive of this discussion, e.g. .

Maybe it's related to
(use of msleep busy-wait loops in ohci1394's interrupt handler's
context). Whatever it is, the fact that you lose interrupt events only
after a bus reset & selfID complete event strongly indicates that there
is something wrong with the drivers' low-level bus reset handling. OTOH
I don't remember a similar report.

One thing you could try next is to add a debug logging macro which
prints the contents of OHCI1394_IntEventClear, OHCI1394_IntEventSet, and
OHCI1394_IntMaskSet, right after ohci1394's call to
hpsb_selfid_complete. (I'm merely poking in the dark here.)
