I think the confusion here is that the target doesn't need to be running
anything; you can DMA chunks of memory with the OHCI controller with no
need for any software support. The debugger host is what's running

Unless I'm confused too, which is likely. Andi, I think your docs
should be more explicit about what runs where.

Also, the tricky bit for me is debugging resume; firescope still
requires the OHCI device to come up to be useful, but I that's no
different from using netconsole.

Neat stuff; I need to get my two firewire-enabled machines close enough
to each other to try it out.
